In collaborative partnership with the Center for Innovation in Urban Education (CIUE), the Loyola University Maryland UNITE chapter is committed to challenging preconceived stereotypes among Loyola students, promoting social justice and cura personalis, and providing a constructive space to discuss students experiences teaching in urban schools.  The Loyola University Maryland UNITE chapter aims to ultimately become the East Coast hub for UNITE.

Focus Areas:

  1. Professional Development: To invite professional educators and community leaders to share their experiences, insight, and/or research on specific topics relevant to UNITE members' involvement in urban education settings.
  2. Community Engagement: To connect with Baltimore City communities and students outside the classroom.
  3. Fundraising: To provide financial support to Baltimore City schools and community centers as well as afford members the opportunity to attend conferences and visit regional urban schools and communities.
