In an effort to make sure all members of the Loyola community feel welcome, new diversity strategies and initiatives have been created to further promote the university’s mission.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is a new initiative that will create an inclusive learning and work environment through teaching, research, creative activities and service. It launched a website outlining its mission Aug. 8.

Much like the university’s mission statement, the new office will further ensure that Loyola will be a place where all students, staff, faculty and guests feel welcome, inspired and included, the website said. Goals for the office include creating an inclusive learning and work environment as well as a more supportive retention strategy for students of color.

The office will also serve as a safe space for students and other organizations to be supported and let their voices be heard.

Upon the website’s launch, Loyola students took to social media to discuss their views on the site.
