Loyola University Chicago

The Next 150

Onward 150

Thank you to everyone who participated in last fall’s campus conversations. Nearly 300 students, faculty, and staff participated; more provided feedback online.

 Please register and join us for one or more of the six upcoming focus groups:

  • March 4: Health Sciences Campus (HSC)
  • March 9: Lake Shore Campus (LSC) and Water Tower Campus (WTC)
  • March 10: HSC
  • March 17: LSC
  • March 18: WTC

(Refreshments and snacks will be available.)

During these focus groups, we will review the ideas generated last fall and listen to your feedback at this stage in the planning process.  We will add metrics and other components later.     

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee (comprised of faculty, staff, and two students) gathered your ideas from the fall’s campus conversations. Together with feedback from the Board of Trustees and within the context of the “Greater Good” document (authored by the University’s deans), the Jesuits USA Midwest Province Go Forth! report, and the Universal Apostolic Preferences, the Committee has developed draft “enduring values” and accompanying “priorities” for you to consider.

While we encourage you to register and participate in these focus groups, there will be opportunities to submit feedback online.  

As Loyola University Chicago celebrates its 150th anniversary, thank you for sharing your ideas, hopes, and dreams for the University’s next five years – and beyond!
