A Catholic, Jesuit comprehensive university in Baltimore, Loyola University Maryland is committed to the ideals of liberal education and the development of the whole person, a university dedicated to inspiring its students to learn, lead and serve in a diverse and changing world. This mission is embraced through an undergraduate curriculum, rooted in the Jesuit tradition of the liberal arts, which prepares students for success in wide-ranging professional pursuits and graduate studies. Loyola's undergraduate experience is complemented by its graduate programs, the region's leaders in professional education. The Loyola University Maryland education also promotes in all students a sense of their responsibility to others in their community and throughout the world. This ideal is underscored by a thriving program of community service that takes Loyola students into the greater Baltimore community and beyond to serve individuals who are materially disadvantaged, creating a synergy of mind, body and spirit that transforms lives.
