A message from the Office of the President.

Kevin Wildes, S.J., University President

As a Jesuit university, we are committed to being and educating women and men with and for others. We are committed to encouraging everyone in our community not only to imagine but also to act upon social justice and work to create a society that is more diverse, inclusive, and just.

I view diversity and inclusiveness as a strategic mission. It’s important that no one in the Loyola University New Orleans community should ever feel marginalized. We must work to create a culture that is consistent with our values as a Jesuit University.

Through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, we aim to further an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding at Loyola; to advance inclusive student enrollment efforts; to improve the diversity of our campus; and to develop a more supportive retention strategy while fostering an environment in which everyone in our community feels a sense of safety, belonging, and representation.
