Residence Life

Diversity Statement

The Residence Life community at Loyola University Chicago is committed to creating an inclusive environment that embraces and values all members of our communities with appreciation for their age, ability, color, creed, cultural background, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, national origin, race, religious affiliation or spiritual affinity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or veteran status. Consistent with our Jesuit identity and mission, we promote environments that intentionally focus on social justice and maintain the human dignity of all.
We believe that bigotry or any forms of harassment including verbal or written abuse, threats, ridicule, intimidation, cyber-bullying, or violence against any member or visitor of our communities have no place. Likewise, we will not accept fear, ignorance, religious bias, anger, alcohol or substance abuse as an excuse, reason or rationale for such behavior.
Recognizing the essential role diversity plays in educational excellence, we intentionally develop communities where all members can integrate key academic, spiritual, social, and recreational experiences that inform their diverse being.
We are dedicated to recruiting, hiring, selecting, promoting, and retaining a competent and diverse team that reflects the cultural and personal diversity of the Loyola and greater Chicago community.
Our commitment to these principles is an integral part of our purpose, values and daily activities.
