About Us

ALANA Services joins the rest of the Loyola community in expressing our grief, sorrow, and compassion for the racial injustices and tragedies that have been occurring across our nation.

History

ALANA Services was established in the fall of 1993 as a part of the division of student development. Formerly "Minority Student Services," ALANA Student Services was renamed in spring 2001.

Renovation to the third floor of the Student Center began in May 2018 and continued through the summer. The renovation project was completed in August 2018 and resulted in a new Center for Intercultural Engagement (formerly the CMC), as well as an updated ALANA Services and Student Activities office suite, and new additions that include the SGA Conference Room, Pride Resource Room, an additional conference room, and gender-neutral restrooms.

Throughout its history, the office has served as a strong cultural and social base where all members of the Loyola community can learn about the concerns and cultures of ALANA students.

Mission Statement

ALANA (African, Latino, Asian and Native American) Services is committed to providing support, services and programs that facilitate the success of all ALANA students at Loyola. Through intentional programming and a myriad of services, we foster the academic, cultural, personal, spiritual and leadership development of ALANA students. Furthermore, we seek to create and maintain an environment of respect and awareness, while advocating for ALANA students and responding to their needs.

Statement of Diversity

Loyola values the benefits of diversity. ALANA Services is committed to creating a community which recognizes the inherent quality and dignity of each individual. Hence, ALANA Services actively promotes an awareness of, and sensitivity to, differences based on race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, culture, sexual orientation, religion, age, and disability. It is the intent of ALANA Services to support ALANA students and the entire Loyola community by enriching the minds of all in regards to the beauty of diversity.
