From the moment you step on campus, we make an impression. It might be the lakefront property, nationally ranked degree programs, our Jesuit mission, or our Rogers Park neighbors. But, we are not just that pretty campus. Loyola is downtown in the heart of Chicago, we’re partnering with Trinity Health in Maywood and the suburbs. We even have a campus in Rome, Italy—and our online degree programs bring our expertise and mission to you. Get to know us and our undergraduate, graduate, or adult education programs.
We are Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic University
Our faculty, staff, and students come from all faiths and backgrounds, but together, we strive toward the same goal, being men and women for and with others. But what makes a Jesuit university different? Our students receive an education that stresses the importance of knowledge, curiosity, global perspectives, and cura personalis, which translates to “care for the whole person.”
Our Loyola community isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty cleaning up neighborhood parks and gardens—or use its expertise to mentor girls interested in STEM programs. They research local food deserts and volunteer with our student-run farmers market to make healthy food more accessible. Here, we don’t talk about making the world a better place—we get to work.
We are Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic University:
a diverse community seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith.
As a Jesuit Catholic university, we are stewards of our Catholic tradition and our unique Ignatian heritage. Our mission defines our roots, our ways of proceeding and the outcomes we strive to achieve. At Loyola University Chicago, we actively support our mission in many ways.
Loyola University Chicago is the school of choice for those who wish to seek new knowledge in the service of humanity in a world-renowned urban center as members of a diverse learning community that values freedom of inquiry, the pursuit of truth and care for others.
