Residence Life

Multicultural LC


Multicultural LC Students on Retreat

The Multicultural Learning Community is home to a diverse community of first-year students who share a passion for exploring issues of diversity and social justice, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and more. Members of the community explore their own identity, develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for others, confront the realities of power, privilege and oppression, and learn to become agents for social change.

Activities and Programs

The Multicultural LC actively participates in programs that aim to bring together students, faculty, and staff from different backgrounds to build deeper cultural understanding and to encourage action towards social justice. Students enjoy frequent workshops and discussions that connect their interests and passions and learn to take action to create a more just community here at Loyola and beyond. Faculty have lead a number of student trips to cultural museums such as the Holocaust Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Art Institute of Chicago and to theater productions around the city of Chicago that explore cultural events and perspectives.
