Loyola at a Glance
iLIVE recognized as Outstanding Campus Program
April 26, 2011
Loyola University New Orleans was awarded the prestigious 2011 Ignatian Medal for Outstanding Campus Program by the Jesuit Association of Professional Administrators last month at their annual spring conference, held this year at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pa.
Vice President for Student Affairs and Associate Provost, Cissy Petty, Ph. D., accepted the medal on behalf of the Ignatius Loyola Institute for Values Education or iLIVE program, which provides each undergraduate student co-curricular experiences to discover, develop and apply principles for building ethical and meaningful lives. The program focuses on Jesuit and Catholic values and sponsors programs and activities encouraging the processes of reflection and discernment.
The Ignatian Medal for an Outstanding Campus Program is the only Ignatian Medal awarded to an institution rather than an individual person.
“Of course, institutions don’t create programs, people do. The honor of this award belongs to the many Student Affairs professionals at Loyola who have worked during the past four years to make iLIVE a success,” Petty said.
The iLIVE program provides exposure to wellness initiatives, speaker and lecture series on current issues and leadership topics, career identification, commitment to diversity, character development, and service.
JASPA’s goal is to work to promote the mission of Jesuit higher education. Each year JASPA members honor campus leaders, programs and initiatives for contributions to Jesuit higher education.
