Institution Description

We are Chicago's Jesuit, Catholic University. Our faculty, staff, and students come from all faiths and backgrounds, but together, we strive toward the same goal, being men and women for and with others. But what makes a Jesuit university different? Our students receive an education that stresses the importance of knowledge, curiosity, global perspectives, and cura personalis, which translates to “care for the whole person.”

Our Loyola community isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty cleaning up neighborhood parks and gardens—or use its expertise to mentor girls interested in STEM programs. They research local food deserts and volunteer with our student-run farmers market to make healthy food more accessible. Here, we don't talk about making the world a better place—we get to work.

Loyola University Chicago is a great place to work! We aim to provide excellent benefit offerings, a diverse, inclusive and equitable campus environment, and a work experience designed to help faculty, staff, and students develop personally and professionally through collaborative engagement. Thank you in advance for your interest in working at Loyola University Chicago.
