At Loyola, we do more than prepare teachers. We shape accomplished educators. Our primary aim is to develop highly effective and ethical educational leaders and change agents who share our convictions about, as well as our commitment to, bringing about social justice by improving education for all children, especially those who suffer most from an inadequate system.
Our commitment to education and social justice stems from a 450-year-old Jesuit tradition that values academic excellence, integrity, service, community, and discernment. We aim to educate whole persons, in intellect, consciousness, and spirit so that they leave here with the knowledge, compassion, and moral compass to lead the way for others. Our mission is to prepare educators who can bring about fundamental change for a student, a school, or a system.
