Urban Partners

Connecting Loyola University New Orleans to its neighborhood

The Twomey Center for Peace Through Justice seeks to shape social justice consciousness through education, and to take action on critical social problems confronting society. The Twomey Center acts as a catalyst for research and action on critical issues of workers' rights, racism, poverty and justice. Our mission is achieved through action, reflection and dialogue generating community partnerships.

Urban Partners is based on the concept of partnerships and collaborations with organizations working on social justice issues. It seeks to link university resources, faculty, staff and students to assist as a resource to these community organizations and leaders. In the last 20 years there have been numerous partnerships established through the Twomey Center linking the resources of the university to the community.

Service to partners include:

  • board membership
  • volunteering
  • research and analysis
  • mentoring
