Office of Mission and Identity

Creating a more just and humane world

The Office of Mission and Identity at Loyola University New Orleans fosters the Jesuit and Catholic mission and identity of the institution. It serves the holistic education of our students by attending to the faith, spiritual, and religious formation of the University community. In collaboration with student leaders, staff, faculty and administrators, we promote a vision of the way of proceeding set forth by St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.

Embracing our common human dignity created in God's image and likeness, we foster a greater respect for the truth, goodness and grace to be found in a diversity of faith traditions and people of every culture, race, language and economic status.

We assist the formation of our community members to be contemplatives-in-action; to have God’s spirit illuminating them with an ever deeper experience of the love of God and inspiring a more generous response to that love by their passionate commitment to service and justice as men and women with and for others.
