LUCserve offers student-led service and justice programs for all Loyola students. Through a series of programs, students can explore the breadth and depth of service through workshops, conversations, and activities.
LUCserve programs are designed so that students will be:
- Immersed in the Loyola University culture of service
- Invited to explore social justice issues within Rogers Park and Edgewater
- Inspired to broaden their definition of service beyond direct service
- Ignited to sustain a habit of service
Central to those goals are:
- Community Building among all Loyola students
- Student-Led Initiatives where CSA leaders engage and support fellow Ramblers
- Ongoing Community Connections that respect our long-standing collaborations
