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.
