Essay Question

In light of the mission, vision, and language from the core value diversity highlighted below, please answer the following question:

How do you see your personal and professional development during college, and later as a professional, being shaped by the below mission, vision, and core value?

The mission of the Sellinger School of Business and management, in part, is as follows:

"The Sellinger School of Business and Management educates innovative, collaborative, data-driven, and principled students who will be prepared to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world. Our Jesuit business programs are characterized by purposeful teaching, scholarship with impact, meaningful community engagement, and care for the whole person."

Further, the vision of Dean Kathy Getz notes the following:

“The Sellinger School of Business will be known for scholarship that encourages and supports business as a positive force in the world and for graduates who create or lead enterprises that contribute to prosperity and justice in Baltimore, the United States, and the world.”

And finally, one of Loyola's core values is diversity. In part, the core value stands for the following:

"Seeking to increase its own diverse nature, Loyola encourages openness to new discoveries, ideas, methods, and perspectives, and it actively encourages and celebrates diversity in all forms. This includes promoting 'awareness of and sensitivity toward differences of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, and disabilities' [...] Indeed, Loyola sees diversity as an inherent source of richness and a necessary opportunity for learning and growth. Loyola also seeks to encourage all of its constituents to respect, value, and welcome 'the inherent value and dignity of each person' as a gifted contributor to the community as a whole. The University is of course committed to challenging and repudiating prejudice in all its forms, and to encouraging global and international awareness, both within and outside its curricula."
