Recently, our food service vendor, Aramark, offered a menu in Damen Dining meant to celebrate Black History Month, which was interpreted as promoting stereotypes of the African American community. Aramark has taken responsibility for this menu and apologized. In addition, the signage promoting the menu was insensitive and inappropriate. This was the misjudgment of one Aramark employee and the issue is being addressed. Loyola has the utmost commitment to diversity and inclusion. The university is taking steps with Aramark to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Students who have concerns regarding this issue are encouraged to reach out to the Dean of Students Office at 773-508-8840.
