Who we are
Our community prides itself on its fascinating, offbeat, friendly, and diverse mix of individuals. This sets the stage for you to define who you want to be—there’s no “in crowd” here. The many people you’ll meet from different backgrounds and perspectives will enhance your Loyola experience and deepen your personal journey. You’ll learn about the world, and yourself, in ways you could never imagine.
Committed to Inclusion
We promote diversity and inclusion by sustaining a university-wide commitment to implement a multi-faceted, comprehensive diversity program. Our initiatives focus on four overarching strategies:
- Dedicated to a high-quality, experiential, and values-based education.
- Devoted to students’ discovery of their career and a life of service.
- Infused by the cultures and traditions of New Orleans.
- Rooted in the Jesuit and Catholic mission of the university.
