Guided by its 2008–2013 strategic plan, Loyola University Maryland has embarked on a series of initiatives in undergraduate and graduate education, community service, faculty development, and athletics designed to ensure its place as the leading Catholic comprehensive university in the United States, while also recognizing that Loyola must, and does, play a critical and constructive role in our local, regional, national, and global communities. Corporations and foundations are invited to join with the University to assure that our mutual goals and commitment to education are realized.
Scholarships and Fellowships
The core curriculum at Loyola is an engaging course of study that offers rigor and challenge to intellectually curious students. It also provides the foundation for a rich and meaningful life. Loyola’s Jesuit, Catholic tradition is the foundation of our student-centered education with undergraduate programs rooted in the liberal arts tradition and premier graduate programs. Today, Loyola offers four undergraduate degrees in 27 fields, with graduate programs in Business and Management, Computer Science and Software Engineering, Education, Liberal Studies, Pastoral Counseling, Psychology, Speech-Language Pathology, and Theology. Our graduate programs are distinguished by a focus on meaningful professional service and leadership and by an emphasis on academic achievement, excellence in teaching, and engaged, significant scholarship.
Scholarships and fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students enable Loyola to continue its emphasis on diversity and inclusion. Funds may be directed to the General Scholarship program or they may be named for the funder. Contributors may direct the University to provide funding to those who demonstrate a need for assistance and/or qualify for a merit award. They may also provide full or partial funding that is unrestricted or based on an area of study or participation in athletics. When awards are made to graduate students, the students are able to participate in research activities that contribute to academic advancement in their fields.
The faculty is the embodiment of the University. Endowing a faculty position assures that Loyola will continue to provide outstanding education in specific disciplines.
Opportunities are available to enhance faculty support in Loyola’s College of Arts and Sciences, School of Education, and Sellinger School of Business and Management. Support may also include deanships, department chairs, endowed lectures, and departmental funding.
Loyola’s programs provide an outstanding academic experience and a community that fosters personal development. Students may choose from a variety of growth opportunities including, but not limited to, outreach to the underserved, study abroad, athletics, and clubs for every interest. For example, the York Road Initiative focuses on the needs of those who live, learn, and work in the neighborhood adjacent to the Evergreen campus, while the Global Studies program is a new interdisciplinary major that introduces undergraduates to a worldwide perspective in four disciplines: economics, history, political science, and sociology. Corporate and foundation contributors will find that there is at least one Loyola program that perfectly matches their interests and their mission.
Facilities and Equipment
Originally located in two row houses in downtown Baltimore, Loyola has experienced a remarkable transformation from a small, male-only, local college to a diverse, dynamic, coeducational university providing undergraduate and graduate education to more than 6,000 students annually from across the nation and around the world. The undergraduate program is housed on the Evergreen campus on Charles Street, with graduate campuses in Timonium and Columbia. Corporate and foundation partners most recently contributed to a number of important new initiatives: the combined Loyola/Notre Dame Library, the Ridley Athletic Complex, and our newly expanded Donnelly Science Center. And we continue to grow. Our new Living and Learning initiative, Messina, will require additional student housing, and the good work of the Loyola Clinical Centers necessitates that it expand to serve its growing client list. Naming opportunities are available for these and other university building and equipment needs.
