Loyola University Maryland

Mission Week

Mission Week

Mission Week celebrates the University’s Jesuit and Maryland heritage from March 17-26, 2018. The creation of Loyola’s Mission Week was inspired by the strategic plan, The Ignatian Compass, which calls the Loyola community to engage more fully with the University’s Ignatian mission. The week will be celebrated with events and activities related to Loyola’s mission.
