About Loyola

Loyola University Maryland is a Jesuit, Catholic University committed to the educational and spiritual traditions of the Society of Jesus and the development of the whole person. Accordingly, the University inspires students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world.

At Loyola, the ideals that have guided Jesuit universities for nearly 500 years—academic excellence, cura personalis, service, justice, diversity, and integrity—among others, continue to mold the academic, social, and spiritual experiences we offer our students, the programs we pursue, and the relationships we build with the communities that surround us.


Loyola University Maryland was founded in Baltimore, Md., by the Society of Jesus as the first institution of higher learning in the United States to bear St. Ignatius of Loyola's name.
