As we embark

on this new academic year, our campus

renewals are near completion. At the Lake Shore Campus, we’ve just dedicated the last phase of the Damen Student Center, including the Student Development offices and recreation center. We also opened the Kenmore plaza in September, an environmentally friendly pedestrian mall. At the Water Tower Campus, we’re building the new Schreiber Center for the Quinlan School of Business, and at our Health Sciences Campus, the Center for Translational Research and Education is close to completion. With these structural developments in place, it’s good to look out and see what we’ve become, and

what we’re becoming. We’re becoming a place that’s much more diverse. We’re a place that offers the most talented students opportunities for advancing their practical knowledge as well as a sound philo- sophical understanding of their responsibilities to help create a more just world. We’re a place where faculty—including the almost 90 new faculty who joined us this fall—are choosing to work because of our values and our academic rigor. We’re also much more connected with the city of Chicago than ever before, where students can

get real-life experience and participate in service and internships. Our students hail from all over the country and the world, but as we grow more diverse, we also become more connected and embedded in our community. Chicago is our lab, and we need to address as a university community the com- plexities of urban living. Our Institute of Environmental Sustainability, our commitment to public health, and our interdisciplinary Centers of Excellence, including the Center for Urban Research and Learning—these are just a few of the ways Loyola connects itself with the issues facing our city and our world. In that sense, our relationship with Chicago is a partnership that’s stronger than ever. And so, with our campuses renewed and our roots planted firmly in our city, we look toward the

future. Thank you for reading this issue of Loyola magazine to learn more about where we are and what we are becoming.
