Every Loyola student has leadership potential. You are encouraged to look for structured opportunities to develop your leadership skills in your four years at LUC. Leadership encompasses more than membership in an organization (club) or a title. As you clarify your values and strengthen your vision for your life, you will have abundant opportunities day to day to lead by example.
Service is one way Loyola students engage actively in their faith and/or work toward justice. Short-term, long-term, one-time, and regular opportunities exist to serve with our neighbors in Rogers Park and Edgewater, the broader Chicago community, and beyond
Spend time looking through some of Loyola’s leadership programs and commit to attending a club meeting, signing up for an event, or applying for a position.
Learn more about developing your leadership style and skills through positions and programs through Student Leadership Development.
Join registered student organizations (clubs), go Greek, or attend a campus-wide event through Student Activities and Greek Affairs.
Loyola’s commitment to research, justice, and values-based leadership extends to the sustainability efforts both on campus and in the surrounding community. Whether you choose to be involved with these efforts through learning about and committing to green lifestyle choices or become involved in research through the Institute of Environmental Sustainability, there is a place for you!
