Study Abroad

Global awareness is a hallmark of a Jesuit education, and it is extraordinary that our global educational framework continues to thrive and expand more than 450 years since Ignatius of Loyola first embarked on his mission.

Service Abroad & In the Community

Community service opportunities in Baltimore and beyond give students new experiences and a deeper understanding of issues facing our world today—along with a strong desire to seek justice. We have a responsibility to offer hope, to right wrongs, and to stand up for those whose voices wouldn’t be heard otherwise.

Global Discussions

Loyola brings noteworthy leaders to campus to share timely, relevant insight into today’s global society. Our students and community have recently enjoyed talks with former prime minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Tony Blair, and Retired General Colin L. Powell, USA.

Building Local Community

Loyola started the York Road Initiative in 2008 to improve the quality of life for all persons living, working, and learning in the nearby York Road corridor. Loyola works with neighboring businesses, residents, and programs to enhance area education and youth development, build civic capacity, and strengthen the commercial corridor.
