A new report from compensation database PayScale.com ranks Loyola University Maryland tied for No. 26 of more than 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities for mid-career median salary potential of graduates.
The 2012-2013 PayScale College Salary Report also ranks Loyola No. 3 out of 175 southeastern schools based on the same mid-career salary data. PayScale found that the mid-career median salary of a Loyola graduate is $104,000, second highest of any school in Maryland. PayScale lists the median starting salary of a Loyola graduate as $48,300.
All data used to produce PayScale's rankings were collected from employees who successfully completed PayScale's employee survey. Median starting salary data for each school was derived from surveys of full-time employees with five years of experience or fewer in their career or field who hold a bachelor's degree and no higher degrees. Median mid-career salary data was derived from surveys of full-time employees with at least 10 years of experience in their career or field who hold a bachelor's degree and no higher degrees.
PayScale also recently ranked Loyola just outside the top 10% of U.S. universities for return on investment.
The Loyola University Maryland community is mourning the death of Richard E. Hug, an Emeritus member of the University’s Board of Trustees and chairman and CEO of Hug Enterprises Inc. Hug passed away May 4, 2013, at the age of 78.
Hug was first elected to Loyola’s Board of Trustees in 1987 and he attained Emeritus status after his term expired in 1993. The Richard & Lois Hug Lounge in the Francis X. Knott, S.J., Humanities Center on Loyola’s Evergreen campus is named for Hug and his wife in honor of their generosity and service to Loyola.
For 22 years until his retirement in 1995, Hug served as president, chairman and CEO of Environmental Elements Corporation, a company specializing in air pollution control systems for the utility and industrial markets. After retirement, Hug became one of the most prominent philanthropists and political fundraisers in Maryland, leading numerous fundraising efforts that benefitted the National Aquarium in Baltimore, the United Way, and the University of Maryland Medical System, among many other organizations.
Hug led political fundraising efforts in Maryland for former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, former President George W. Bush, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
He sat on numerous boards in addition to Loyola's Board of Trustees, including the University System of Maryland Foundation.
Hug was a 1956 graduate of Duke University.

Carolyn Y. Woo, Ph.D., president and CEO of Catholic Relief Services, will deliver Loyola University Maryland’s 2013 commencement address on Saturday, May 18, at 1st Mariner Arena. As speaker, Woo will receive a Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.
More than 1,600 baccalaureate and advanced degrees will be conferred during the Exercises, which begin at 11 a.m. in Baltimore’s 1st Mariner Arena.
“Dr. Woo’s monumental contributions to academia and social justice throughout her distinguished career are an exemplar of the leadership and vision we value deeply at Loyola,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., Loyola’s president. “I’m thrilled that her insight, coupled with Loyola’s rigorous, Jesuit educational experience, will further inspire this year’s graduating class of exceptional men and women to lead, serve, and innovate in the next chapter of their lives.”
Woo was recently named one of the “500 Most Powerful People on the Planet” by Foreign Policy magazine.
In January 2012, Woo became CEO and president of Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS was founded in 1943 by the Catholic Bishops of the United States to serve World War II survivors in Europe. Since then, the Baltimore-based organization has expanded in size to reach more than 100 million people in nearly 100 countries on five continents.
Before CRS, Woo served from 1997 to 2011 as dean of the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. During Woo's tenure, the Mendoza College was frequently recognized as the nation’s leading business school in ethics education and research and received top ranking in 2010 and 2011 for its undergraduate business program from Bloomberg Businessweek magazine. Prior to her time at the University of Notre Dame, Woo served as associate executive vice president for academic affairs at Purdue University.
She was the first female dean to chair the accreditation body for business schools (AACSB: Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and directed its initiative for Peace through Commerce. She has served on advisory boards or boards of directors for numerous organizations, including CRS; Catholic Charities USA; Migration & Refugee Services, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops; and Fuel Up to Play 60 (sponsored by the National Football League and the National Dairy Council). Woo also helped launch the Principles for Responsible Management Education for the United Nations Global Compact program.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Woo immigrated to the United States to attend Purdue University, where she earned her bachelor’s in economics with highest distinction and honors, Master of Science in Industrial Administration with award as Krannert Scholar, and Ph.D. in Strategic Management.
She is married with two sons.
