Community Partner Award

The Loyola University Community Partner Award for Coeducation is given to a non-profit community organization who hosted one or more undergraduate Engaged Learning students since spring 2018 and who best exemplifies the role of a community partner who co-educates and supports our Loyola students. As a coeducator, the partner creates space for learning through collaboration with their organization.

The Community Partner Award for Coeducation exists to recognize and celebrate partner organizations who not only are doing great work for their community, but are also undertaking additional effort to serve as partners in education working with Loyola students at their organization.

The following criteria will guide selection for the Community Partner Award for Coeducation:

  • The community partner has hosted one or more undergraduate Engaged Learning students in the Spring 2018, Fall 2018, and/or Spring 2019 semester(s).

  • The community partner has taken an active role in the learning of the students at their site (creating a learning plan, clear learning goals, etc.).

  • The community partner has had strong and deepening relationship with Loyola University and the Center for Experiential Learning.

Nominations for the Community Partner Award for Coeducation are now open. All nominations are due by Monday, March 18th. Nominations may be submitted by a student, staff or faculty member, or community partner organization. Finalists will be contacted to provide an additional statement about their partnership with Loyola. The winning organization will receive $500 to support their work.
