Extraordinary academics & research

We are called to transform lives through our teaching, learning, and research. We will pursue educational innovations and leverage the Ignatian traditions to make education accessible to all and enhance the success of our student body. We will lead research and scholarship that intentionally aligns with our mission, promotes racial justice, and addresses other complex societal challenges.

Priorities

Work across campuses as One Loyola to incentivize leadership in interdisciplinary and innovative education and research to address new challenges and opportunities presented by contemporary issues.

Promote the culture of research by increasing research support infrastructure to enable faculty and students in the pursuit and dissemination of new and translational knowledge.
