Le Moyne College, located in Syracuse, N.Y., is an independent college established by the Jesuits in 1946 to provide students with a values-based, comprehensive academic program designed to foster intellectual excellence and preparation for a life of leadership and service. Today, Le Moyne has evolved into a nationally acclaimed college of liberal arts and sciences that draws students from across the U.S. and abroad.

Inspired by St. Ignatius of Loyola's capacity to find God in all things, Le Moyne seeks to build a respectful, welcoming campus culture that celebrates difference and models inclusion. Uniqueness is expressed through gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age physical and mental attributes, and religious an political beliefs. A Catholic, Jesuit college has a particular responsibility to provide an environment for the safe and nurturing exploration of difference, while also offering rich, ample opportunities for students to pursue the Jesuit ideal of "education in dialogue with the world." 

These two awards are presented at Fall Convocation to honor outstanding work among members of the Le Moyne College community.  

The Ignatian Mission Award: Living the Le Moyne vision acknowledges an employee’s pursuit of the Le Moyne vision “to be a premier Jesuit college where diverse talents meet to foster academic excellence, integrity and a commitment to justice.” St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, believed that education should be driven by the purpose of seeking God in all things, and of promoting God’s kingdom thru the service of men and women. The Ignatian Mission Award is based on an employee’s commitment and support to Le Moyne's vision. 

The Annual Magis Award: Spirit of Excellence acknowledges employees’ pursuit of excellence throughout the year. “Magis” translated literally from Latin means “more.” Within the context of our Jesuit heritage, it refers to the value that St. Ignatius of Loyola placed on responding gratefully and generously to God’s goodness by striving for excellence in all that we do, and all that we are. To that end, the Annual Magis Award is based on a performance that exemplifies excellence beyond normal duties: service, leadership or through other professional contributions.

  • In keeping with our mission, Le Moyne's faculty and staff work together throughout the year to give back to our community.  Each fall, the campus participates in "Le Moyne Cans Hunger" - a 12-week drive to support the Interreligious Food Consortium. The  College collects roughly a ton of food each year.  The campus has also worked together to provide books to students at Cathedral Academy at Pompei and to collect goods for Vera House. Le Moyne's Employee Forum also sponsors "Jeans Fridays" throughout the year to provide financial support to students, alumni, and community members suffering personal hardship.
