Our work at Loyola University New Orleans often takes place in the context of collaborations. We know that the academic activities of our students, faculty, and staff have great potential to address problems facing the communities we are a part of. This report illustrates recent examples of Loyola’s community engagement. We work alongside organizations that endeavor to end homelessness or provide food to those who cannot afford it and with others that enrich the community through the visual arts, music, and theatre. Our faculty and students also create organizations that fill community needs: a ministry institute in a prison, a dental program
serving rural children. Others conduct research that empowers policymakers to shape a world in which communities can thrive. All of the faculty, students, and staff in this report are dedicated
to scholarship and advocacy that engages and improves the communities around us.
