Office of Mission and Identity
Creating a more just and humane world
The Office of Mission & Identity at Loyola University New Orleans fosters the Jesuit and Catholic mission and identity of the institution. In partnership with university administration, students, faculty, and staff the Office of Mission & Identity promotes a vision and culture which follows the values of the Ignatian Tradition.
Embracing our common human dignity created in God's image and likeness, we foster a greater respect for the truth, goodness and grace to be found in a diversity of faith traditions and people of every culture, race, language and economic status.
The Ignatian Year
Beginning May 20th, we enter the “Ignatian Year,” marking 500 years from when Ignatius of Loyola was struck by a cannonball (rather a dramatic way for God to get your attention.) That experience transformed his life from soldier to pilgrim, the saint whose vision inspires everything we do for our students. This Ignatian Year is all the more reason for us at Loyola to take time to build our own community, to reflect and to celebrate our Jesuit Catholic identity.
