Strategic Planning

Ways to Get Involved

We hope everyone in the community will take advantage of the many ways we invite your participation. Help us CARE together!

Community Engagement Sessions

Join us in co-creating the plan that will direct Loyola’s future. These sessions are designed to:

  1. Identify strategic ideas that will inform what our university prioritizes in the coming years and where we dedicate our resources;
  2. Dream big about opportunities that will inspire our future plans; and
  3. Foster community engagement by creating intentional spaces where people can share ideas, feel heard, and, appreciate the diversity of thought within our community.

We will be asking for your input on the topics listed below: 

  • Strengths: What strengths should Loyola build on to achieve its success? What differentiates Loyola from other institutions of higher education?
  • Shortcomings: Where are our areas of weakness and shortcoming? Where do we need to improve to become more successful?
  • Opportunities: What opportunities exist for Loyola in the present and future? How should we utilize our strengths to capitalize on opportunities?
  • Aspirations: What is your greatest dream for Loyola? What do we aspire to become?
  • Results: What will Loyola become as a result of this plan?

Please take some time to reflect and come prepared to share your perspective.

The same topics will be used for all sessions. All sessions will be audio recorded and will be anonymized before being submitted to the committee for analysis. All comments from all sessions will remain anonymous.
