This section of our website describes the bigger picture of Loyola's community engagement. Beyond academic service learning and CBFWS, how do Loyola students, faculty, staff collaborate with community partners to promote learning and positive impact?
Community engagement is one of the most important ways Loyola pursues its Jesuit mission to form men and women with and for others, educate the whole student, and benefit the larger community.
Following the Jesuit spirit, Loyola's approach to community engagement is highly invitational. The university encourages faculty, staff, and students to incorporate community engagement into all aspects of their work -- including not only teaching and learning, but also scholarly and creative activity as well as service and outreach -- through the avenues they believe can generate the greatest impact.
