Loyola University Chicago

Neighborhood Initiatives

Our Mission

To engage Loyola University Chicago and its students with the life of our community through mutually beneficial partnerships and activities that animate Loyola’s Enduring Values and the Characteristics of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. 

Serving as the administration’s community connection, the office encourages internal and external relationships that strengthen Loyola’s role as an Anchor Institution; promoting opportunities to strategically and intentionally use our human, financial, and spiritual resources to improve quality of life for Chicagoland residents, especially those most historically marginalized in our communities.
