Abstract

Loyola University Chicago is committed to a sustainable future through academics and research as well as co-curricular activities and campus infrastructure. A key aspect of Loyola’s social justice mission is addressing climate change and the associated disruptions to natural and social infrastructure and systems. Announced as part of a series of events around the release of Laudato si', Pope Francis’ Encyclical, Loyola released a climate action plan with a carbon neutrality goal of 2025 called “A Just Future”. As an urban Catholic Jesuit university, Loyola addresses climate through three main strategies: the campus, the curriculum, and community engagement.
