LICET OFFICIALS

Overview

Loyola ICAM College, founded on the values of our Jesuit founders, encourages students to look inward while still reaching out—to grow their minds and abilities to their full potential and use them in service to others. The college is made up of numerous committees that are responsible for the institution’s overall development and growth. Officials and department heads meet on a regular basis to review the day-to-day, weekly, and monthly events that are scheduled. The LICET Officials coordinate the activities of teachers, students, and other staff members to ensure that academic and extracurricular activities run smoothly. They ensure that pedagogical topics are better disseminated and that students develop a progressive, diverse, realistic, and analytic perspective as they grow into responsible citizens.
