Environment

Protect, conserve, renew

Hurricanes, oil spills and coastal erosion present unavoidable challenges to the southeast Louisiana coastal area that foreshadow environmental quandaries elsewhere. Unlike most other institutions, Loyola University offers its students a front row seat for community debates over the cost, effectiveness and long-range consequences of engineering regional ecosystems. Wetland, lake, river and gulf estuaries surrounding the city provide unique opportunities for the exploration and study of natural resources.  Urban New Orleans also surrounds the campus, offering students a place to explore dynamic cultural traditions of music, art, cuisine, gardens and architecture celebrating the changing landscape.
