Rambler Brotherhood Project


The Rambler Brotherhood Project (RBP), first unveiled in spring 2023, is a student success initiative that aims to improve the educational experience for all students at a time when national enrollment and graduation rates in that population continue to decline. Through a host of mentorship, programmatic, and academic opportunities, the Rambler Brotherhood Project aims to instill a sense of resilience and belonging in all students–especially men, who are shown in research to increasingly fall through cracks in higher education.  

Keith M. Champagne, PhD, Loyola’s vice president for Student Development, is passionate about the program’s potential impact. “We are creating an excellent leadership pipeline of professional, educated young men who can succeed economically, socially, culturally, and politically–men who will help Chicago to become a better city and place.”

RBP interview 

"Ever since I've been a part of RBP, I've felt like an actual part of the Loyola community," says Emmanuel Ezeocha, a junior double majoring in music and information systems. "It has allowed me to come out of my shell and understand that there are people who want to help me."
