Ignation Pedagogy

The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy (FCIP):  This website offers information on FCIP's university-wide mission to support and educate teachers according to the principles of Ignatian pedagogy. FCIP encourages excellence in teaching by facilitating the role of faculty in the formation of students as whole persons. The Center promotes the implementation of creative teaching strategies that reflect the intellectual, social and spiritual context of today's students, often holding teaching workshops on technology and classroom strategies and offering online teaching certification through a special course.

Certificate Program: Loyola initiated the Ignatian Pedagogy (IP) Certificate program in the fall of 2015 to help introduce faculty and staff to the basics of Ignatian pedagogy and its application to the teaching and learning mission at Loyola University Chicago.
