Community Engagement

In the Jesuit tradition, Loyola University New Orleans strives to develop individuals who dedicate their lives to service for others.

In 2010, Loyola became one of only 311 higher education institutions to receive the Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

The impetus for community engagement flows from the mandate of all modern Jesuit institutions: to form men and women with and for others; to graduate students who are both committed and well-equipped to contribute to social justice and the common good; to foster a faith that does justice.

Community Engagement is…

Recognizing that our university is part of a local, regional, national, and global community.

Committing our knowledge, resources, and talents to partnership with the community and promotion of social justice and the general welfare.

How do we partner with community agencies?
