Be the Change Week

How will you be the change you wish to see in the world?

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” The idea behind this program stems from a Loyola University Chicago promise to all students, which is, to “prepare people to lead extraordinary lives.” Following the mission and values of our university, we encourage students to embrace our Ignatian heritage and live out the legacy of Ignatius Loyola. Our university has a rich heritage and profound commitment to issues of social responsibility and justice.

Student Leadership Development plans programs over the course of a whole week in February to invite the Loyola community to engage in conversations around what it truly means to “Be the Change.” In collaboration with other departments, we will offer a variety of programs that challenge our way of thinking and encourage us to be people for others. More details regarding the schedule will be available in late fall.
