FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Loyola University Chicago Service Day 2006 to Focus on Local Elementary Schools
To celebrate the feast day of St. Ignatius and his commitment to community outreach and public service, Loyola faculty, staff, and retirees will take part in two community projects as part of the University’s annual Service Day. This year’s events include a community painting project at the Chicago Math and Science Academy and a technology project that involves the preparation, delivery, and installation of 30 computers, mice, and keyboards, as well as three printers to St. Barbara School.
In choosing the Chicago Math and Science Academy, Loyola continues to show its support for math and science education at the elementary level. In addition to this specific service project, the University also boasts a Center for Science and Math Education (CSME) whose mission is to improve the quality of science and math education in area schools. More information on Loyola’s CSME can be found online at www.luc.edu/cse/.
