Mission Statement

The past is inescapable; it shapes our physical, social, political, and intellectual reality. Historians search for truth and ponder the great questions that have confronted humanity. The Loyola University Student Historical Journal exists to promote the study of history at Loyola and the community at large. By providing students with an opportunity to publish the very best of their work, the journal not only gives them professional experience and exposure, but also allows them to share with all historical enthusiasts the knowledge which they have acquired from their studies. This journal, like history itself, exists to provide a window into the past, and as such the view we find may not always be pleasant. We know that through this endeavor the Loyola University Student Historical Journal will achieve a standard in editing and publishing tantamount to the level of excellence that has come to be synonymous with the Jesuit tradition of learning.
