Community Examen Reports

In November and December, more than 90 small groups across all of our campuses came together to inquire how we live our Jesuit mission in this time and era at Loyola University Chicago. Nearly 800 students, faculty and staff participated.

Their input is collected in Loyola’s Mission Priority Self-Study, and provides a current picture of our work in advancing the Jesuit educational mission. It indicates where there are opportunities to deepen our work and respond to the challenges of the future. From the process, priorities emerged around mission structure, programming, assessment and hiring.

These priorities provide a framework and direction for our 2025 strategic planning process that begins this fall. We encourage our community to review the Executive Summary and full Self-Study report as well as the Peer Visitor Committee report, which comes out of the committee’s review of the Self-Study and face-to-face meetings on our campuses.

You can engage in this ongoing conversation and learn more at upcoming Lunch and Learn sessions hosted by the Office of Mission & Identity.
