Our mission is to collaborate with neighbors and partners to produce positive change in our York Road community.


Our vision is a strong network of connected partners that share resources to grow a healthy York Road community for all.

The York Road Initiative aims to improve the quality of life for all persons living, working, and learning in the York Road corridor as a principal community engagement initiative of Loyola University Maryland's 2008-13 Strategic Plan.

Partnering with neighbors and others, we focus on the educational development, health, and well-being of community residents, as well as upon the economic capability of our neighborhoods, including its residential and retail establishments.

Through the talents and expertise of our students, faculty, staff, and administration, particularly those from our Sellinger School of Business and Management, School of Education, Clinical Centers at Belvedere Square, and Center for Community Service and Justice, we work together with neighbors to enhance area education and youth development, build civic capacity and strengthen the commercial corridor.

We hope you take time to browse our website and learn about all the different projects we're working on here at the York Road Initiative.  Please contact us if you wish to get involved!
