Join us as we welcome Roberta to IPS!

We recently sat down with Roberta to get to know more about her journey to IPS…

What is your background? Before joining IPS, did you have any experience at Loyola?

I have a history with Loyola University Chicago.  As a child, I developed a long lasting relationship with the honorable and highly respectable Sister Jean Delores, as did my father, while employed as a Chef at Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary for 42 years.  I am an alumnus; obtaining my Bachelor degree in Communication.  I was previously employed at Loyola University for 2 years and went on to obtain my master’s degree in sociology from DePaul University Chicago.  Before returning to Loyola, I was employed at the Booth School of Business as a Financial Aid Advisor and at the University of Chicago as an Administrative Coordinator.  Presently, I have returned to the prestigious Loyola community, as Coordinator of Student Services within the Institute of Pastoral Studies. 

Why IPS? What drew you to the position?

I decided to apply for the position of Coordinator within the IPS department because of the diverse job responsibilities.  The duties listed offered me an advancement towards learning new objectives. 

What are you most looking forward to as Coordinator of Student Services?

 I am looking forward to interacting and meeting all students who are welcomed and accepted into the many different programs offered in IPS. I am also looking forward to the process of helping those accepted students achieve their goal in completing the program of their choice, and of course, their graduation ceremony.
