A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

Arrupe College is a two-year college of Loyola University Chicago that continues the Jesuit tradition of offering a rigorous liberal arts education to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their family to pursue higher education.

Using an innovative model that ensures affordability while providing care for the whole person—intellectually, morally, and spiritually—Arrupe prepares its graduates to continue on to a bachelor’s program or move into meaningful employment. Heeding the call of its namesake, renowned Jesuit leader Pedro Arrupe, S.J., the college inspires its students to strive for excellence, work for justice, and become “persons for others.”

Arrupe provides a pathway for nontraditional students to achieve Jesuit higher education. Each year the school has been open (2 years) it has welcomed over 130 students and now has a student body of 319 with 97% a person of color and 89% Pell eligible.

Arrupe's first class was the 2015-16 year and the second class is now on campus.
