Care for the whole person

Cura Personalis is a hallmark of Ignatian spirituality that urges us to care for the entire person. At Loyola, we commit to giving people the individual attention needed to make their moments with us memorable. We respect that every student, and every member of our faculty and staff, comes to our shared work as a whole person, contributing to our community, and being nurtured by it. We will help Ramblers become their best selves and will strengthen connections across our institution to foster a sense of belonging and affinity for all.


Priority 1

Promote an environment of inclusive excellence where diversity, equity, and inclusion are further reinforced to foster a culture of respect for all and the cultivation of positive relationships with one another.​

Priority 2

Enhance our Jesuit identity and prepare students for all life and career pursuits by nurturing the Ignatian skills of service, discernment, critical thinking, civil discourse, civic engagement, and ethical and socially responsible leadership.

Priority 3

Recruit, engage, retain, and support students to help them achieve success academically and in their lives after graduation through agile and exceptional learning experiences, academic support, and career development.

“We will help Ramblers become their best selves through personal and career development, meaningful relationships, and physical, social, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness.”
