Men of Color Initiative

Transition, Persistence, Achievement, and Graduation


The mission of the Men of Color Initiative (MOCI) is to provide support and encouragement to Men of Color through facilitated mentoring relationships with male faculty and staff of color. The objective is to help students achieve success in all areas of their life and satisfaction as members of the Loyola University Chicago community.  In connection with our Jesuit tradition, the program seeks to provide care for the entire person “cura personalis” as we guide, support, and challenge our Men of Color as they engage with the different academic and social aspects they will encounter at Loyola University Chicago.

Program Description

The Men of Color Initiative is a one year mentorship program designed for first year undergraduate and transfer male students of color. Students will be matched with a male faculty or staff member. The program will assist Men of Color in creating a foundation on Loyola's campus through: opportunities for leadership and personal identity development, connecting students to university-wide resources and people, creating unity among participants, and ultimately supporting the educational and personal success of Men of Color.
