An education rooted in rigor and purpose

Loyola College is central to our mission to create the next generation of confident and distinctly viable graduates who are prepared to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world. In the Jesuit tradition, our core liberal arts curriculum is as broad as it is rigorous, providing exceptional instruction in the humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences.

Our students graduate with an equally broad definition of success—one that places considerable value on the ethical dimensions of their personal and professional lives. With support from the Bright Minds, Bold Hearts campaign, Loyola College will be well-positioned to ensure that our graduates demonstrate not only skill and knowledge, but also a desire to make a difference as citizens and as professionals, whether their career path is in business, law, medicine, the arts, social services, or another field.

Endowment Goals

  • An endowed professorship that will enable the University to support an outstanding Loyola College/Honors Program faculty member by providing a competitive salary and additional resources for teaching and research
  • Tenure-track research leaves to support junior faculty members in making significant contributions to their respective fields of study as they pursue a tenured position
  • Scholarships and fellowships to help Loyola meet the full demonstrated financial needs of our undergraduate students, with special consideration given to students interested in important fields at Loyola including computer science, engineering, and physics. Graduate students will receive financial assistance to complete their studies and conduct advanced research alongside their professors.

Current-Use Goals

  • A Faculty Research Development Fund, which will bolster Loyola’s ability to recruit and retain prominent tenure-track faculty, attract talented students, and raise the University’s profile in terms of its expertise and research
