The mandate of the Working Group is to consult the Concordia University community at Loyola about the needs, support and services on the Loyola Campus and to open a dialogue on the identity of the Loyola Campus.
The Working Group will develop a set of actionable recommendations to address the identity of the Loyola Campus and services for members of the community.
The Loyola Campus Working Group met seventeen times between March 2019 and May 2020. Members reviewed a variety of resources and provided multiple ways to the Loyola community to give feedback.

Open call for feedback
The Loyola Campus Working Group organized a series of Ideas Cafés and invited the community to part of the conversation on how to make Loyola an even more vibrant place to study, work, conduct research, play sports or interact with others.
On March 11, 2020, the Loyola Campus Working Group hosted a consultation event with 64 stakeholders (11 students, 11 factuly, 38 staff, 4 senior admin) from across the university to help finalize our set of recommendations.
Following the stakeholders' consultation event, the updated version of the recommendations was posted on the Working Group’s website for two weeks, from May 27, 2020, to June 10, 2020. The whole Concordia community was invited to submit any final feedback to the Working Group’s email address.
Six themes emerged from the discussion with members of the Loyola community:
