Service learning and Jesuit mission
The Office of Service Learning enacts Loyola's Jesuit mission of forming students for lives of service and social responsibility. Service learning connects teaching and learning to the university's larger mission of advancing social justice and the common good. Because of this, it helps prepare young men and women "to lead meaningful lives with and for others; to pursue truth, wisdom, and virtue; and to work for a more just world."
The Office of Service Learning assesses outcomes related to Jesuit mission and uses this information to deepen this connection. For example, see our Assessment Report.
