International Education

We live in a culturally-rich, globally shared, interconnected world. Loyola works to broaden and deepen the global awareness, engagement, and learning of all community members by cultivating an inclusive multicultural environment. This includes:

  • An articulated institutional commitment
  • Administrative leadership, structure, and staffing
  • Curriculum, co-curriculum, and learning outcomes
  • Faculty and staff policies and procedures
  • Student mobility and international recruitment
  • Collaborations and partnerships—locally, nationally, and internationally

Why a Focus on International Education is Important

  • Enhanced cross-cultural understanding
  • Enriched international diversity in curricula and academic programs
  • Support of international education exchange (inbound and outbound students)
  • Promotion of global research and scholarship among faculty members
  • Raising global awareness of emergent issues of sustainability, immigration, public health, human rights, and social justice
  • Recognition of international perspectives and education characteristic of Ignatian Citizenship
  • Preparation of students as global leaders who can understand and discern complexity, interconnection and responsibility of the world
  • Attracting future students and leaders (domestically and from abroad) to study at Loyola
