ALANA (African, Latino, Asian and Native American) Services is a departmental office committed to providing support, services, and programs that encourage the success of ALANA students at Loyola University Maryland. Through intentional programming and a broad spectrum of services, we foster the academic, personal, spiritual, and leadership development of ALANA students. ALANA Services promotes awareness of, and sensitivity to, differences based upon race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, culture, sexual orientation, religion, age, and disability.
ALANA sponsors a variety of programs aimed at enriching and educating members of Loyola's campus community about issues related to diversity and cultural awareness. Activities include the annual International Festival, Heritage Month celebrations, Black Student Association (BSA) fashion show, student panels, film festivals, coffee houses, speakers, Asia Fest, and more!
