A Collaborative Approach
Hundreds of members of the Loyola community came together, in meetings both formal and informal, to identify Loyola’s strengths and find ways to build upon them. We worked with the university’s standing Strategic Planning Committee and with a creative group of faculty from each college. This was a Jesuit process of discernment, discovering truth through considered conversation and consensus.
Our plan also builds on the work we’ve already done as a university to reflect on our identity and goals for growth. We will expand on the key strengths and areas of opportunity identified in our Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence and Mission Priority Examen.
Strategic Plan for Inclusive Excellence
A three-year plan to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion as a core strategic priority for the university.
Mission Priority Examen
A process of institutional reflection resulting in a renewed commitment to our Catholic, Jesuit identity.
2020 Strategic Plan
Loyola is where Jesuit social justice meets New Orleans creativity.
