Mission & Identity

Staff Orientation to Mission

Partners in mission banner

The Jesuit and Catholic heritage of Loyola University Chicago, established at its founding in 1870, has evolved into a unique culture, as well as a living tradition that has been renewed and refocused by generations of students, faculty, staff, and administrators. This heritage is one that includes appreciation of the rich diversity of faith traditions that Loyola staff and faculty bring to Loyola. Loyola’s religious diversity is a vital part of its culture and interfaith dialogue provides new ways to “find God in all things,” as the Jesuits have done throughout their history.

Loyola 201: Partners in Mission 

Working together with the Jesuit Community and the Department of Human Resources, Mission and Identity convenes Loyola 201: Partners in Mission, an orientation for new staff. The purpose of the orientations is to acquaint new members of the Loyola community and to reacquaint others with the history and goals of Jesuit higher education so that they may incorporate an understanding of the university's mission into their roles at the university.

Each orientation will run from 8:00-11:30 a.m.
