Loyola Is Committed to Inclusive Excellence
We’re taking action to make diversity, equity, and inclusion a priority.
Goal One: Create Opportunity
In alignment with our strategic plan, we’re building an inclusive community where students are supported and embraced for who they are.
Goal Two: Teach Our Values
From orientation to a competency requirement in the core curriculum, we teach the fundamental message of our faith that we are all children of God, equal in God’s eyes.
Goal Three: Live Our Values
Our faculty and staff represent the diversity of our community, and we prioritize financing and resources to realize our goal of inclusive excellence.

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.

Women’s Resource Center (WRC)
The WRC seeks to foster a campus environment that is free of sexism and other forms of oppression. WRC aims to advance intersectional feminism through collaborative programming, activism, and advocacy. It is open to all members of the Wolf Pack—because feminism is for everyone.
Office for Accessible Education (OAE)
The OAE is here to help students with adjustments and accommodations. OAE’s Accessibility Counselors can help students determine what accommodations they will need to access course materials, programs, dining, and housing.
MultiCultural Student Organizations
Join one of the many student-led organizations on campus celebrating multicultural backgrounds, discussing issues of diversity and social justice, and preparing leaders with a focus on inclusive excellence.
As a Jesuit university, we embrace and welcome students from all religious and spiritual backgrounds—we are joined together in our shared humanity and curiosity for the world, its history, and its mystery. Through Interfaith Ministries, we support the spiritual growth of students from many faith backgrounds and educate students about diverse faith traditions.
As members of the Wolf Pack, we take care of each other and make sure every student, faculty, and staff member has the resources to thrive. Iggy's Cupboard provides non-perishable food items and other essentials to any member of Loyola's community that may need a little extra help.
TRIO Support Services
Our support services make students feel like part of the Wolf Pack from day one through to graduation. Loyola’s TRIO Student Support Services program provides academic support to first-generation and low-income students, and students with disabilities.
