Our strategic planning process reflects the important role every Rambler plays in our University.

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee—with significant and broad input from three campus conversations, two workshops with the Board of Trustees, and 10 additional campus focus groups—is helping outline a “living” plan that will increase our agility to respond to rapidly changing situations and needs.

We anticipate this plan will spark our community’s imagination and guide decision-making as we consider how to leverage the distinct Loyola experience and invest to make the greatest impact over the next five years and beyond.
