President's Message

Welcome to Loyola University New Orleans Online!

Reverend Kevin Wildes

Engaging students from all walks of life and from all corners of the world, Loyola's Online Programs represent state-of-the-art best practices in online pedagogy and course design, centered in the core values that lie at the heart of our Jesuit Catholic university. Our Online Programs promote rigorous yet sensitive attention to the demands of the professions and of technology.

Offering a wide range of innovative pedagogies and ways to communicate content (e.g., streamed lectures and presentations) Loyola's online courses create an active learning experience – one that engages students in deep, meaningful discussion, critical thinking and reflection, and interaction with other learners. Taking advantage of existing and emerging technologies, Loyola's Online Programs allow both our faculty and students to communicate with expert practitioners across the world, enriching their academic education with real-life connections to the course materials.

As a Jesuit Catholic institution of higher education, Loyola University New Orleans welcomes students of diverse backgrounds and prepares them to lead meaningful and productive lives with and for others, to pursue truth, wisdom, and virtue, and to work for a more just world. Today Loyola is part of the largest network of higher education Jesuit institutions in the world, with Loyola being the largest Jesuit university in the southern United States.

Loyola University New Orleans consistently ranks among the Best Master's Universities in the South in the U.S. News and World Report. Our Monroe Library has been ranked among the top five university libraries in the nation for the sixth consecutive year.

I invite you to join our remarkable academic community and participate in an educational experience of a lifetime – one that connects cherished values with high quality content via technologically advanced delivery systems.

Rev. Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D.
President, Loyola University New Orleans
