The Department of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago believes that our department is best served when the students, faculty, and staff reflect and celebrate the diversity of society at large. An integrated academic community is characterized by a broad range of perspectives. Accordingly, our Department is committed to:
- Increasing the recruitment and retention of underrepresented students, faculty, and staff,
- Welcoming academic perspectives from historically marginalized groups and actively supporting academic freedom,
- Developing and sustaining an inclusive social and working environment that support a variety of career paths, and
- Advocating for and supporting the interests of individuals from all races, sexes, gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, religions, ethnic backgrounds, socio-economic backgrounds, physical and mental abilities, and residency statuses.
In fulfilling this commitment, we will strive to address social problems and respond creatively and compassionately to the challenges facing our local, state, national, and global communities.
