Jesuit Social Research Institute

At the Jesuit Social Research Institute, we work to transform the Gulf South through action research, analysis, education, and advocacy on the core issues of poverty, race, and migration. We are a collaboration of Loyola University New Orleans and the Central and Southern Province of the Society of Jesus, rooted in faith and justice. We believe that faith leads to justice; prophetic vision leads to transformation; love of neighbor leads to solidarity; and scholarship leads to action.
