About Volunteer Service

Serivice, in the Jesuit tradition 

In the tradition of Ignatius of Loyola and in the Jesuit educational belief that God placed us here on this world to become men and women for and with others, the Office of Mission and Ministry provides a variety of opportunities for a student to live a reflective life of action for service, justice, and peace.

In our commitment to a mission of a faith that does justice, Loyola University New Orleans seeks to engage the local and global community through service.  We seek to reach out to those inside the university, in the greater New Orleans area, nationally, and internationally to shape the best possible systems and structure to serve our partners, students, faculty, staff and alumni while fulfilling the mission of our Jesuit identity. 

A key Ignatian objective is to form men and women for and with others.

"Today our prime educational objective must be to form men-for-others; men who will live not for themselves but for God; men who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men completely convinced that love of God which does not issue in justice for others is a farce." – Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.,  Father General of the Society of Jesus (1973)
