Welcome to Diversity and Inclusion at Loyola University New Orleans! At the heart of Loyola’s mission as a Jesuit institution is our commitment to being a place where all students, staff, faculty, and guests feel welcome, inspired, and supported. We work to achieve this every day and across all areas of the institution, because that is what it means to us to be “people with and for others.” We strive to foster a spirit of mutual recognition and support—to be a community in which all people can thrive.

Come see us in Bobet 110, and please feel free to join our efforts! You belong here.

Loyola is committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity by sustaining a university-wide commitment to:

• Advance diversity, inclusion, and equity as core strategic priorities in planning.
• Create more inclusive student enrollment efforts and a more supportive retention strategy for students of color.
• Create an inclusive learning and work environment through teaching, research, creative activities, and service.
• Promote critical thinking and just action, embodying the Ignatian ideals of faith, truth, justice, and service.
• Capitalize on our diversity to produce greater learning outcomes and prepare students for an increasingly diverse workforce and multicultural society.


The Office of Diversity and Inclusion collaborates with campus organizations to provide community members affected by bias a safe, secure, and confidential avenue to be heard and supported. If you would like to participate in this effort, email Sybol Anderson at scanders@loyno.edu
