Advocacy and Citizenship

Being a member of Loyola means learning about and taking part in our local, national, and global community. It means participating in activities and events around Baltimore. It means listening and asking questions. It means seeking out meaningful solutions to conflicts and problems. It means showing up and getting others to show up. It means writing letters, voting, and forming relationships. It means getting to know the social justice concerns impacting the local and global community of which Loyola is a part.
