Greetings from Loyola University Maryland’s office of corporate and foundation relations! It’s been a very exciting fall at Loyola. Not only did we complete the expansion and renovation of our Donnelly Science Center, we are also the grateful recipients of the largest individual gift in University history—a $5.2 million contribution from Ed Hanway, ’74, chairman of Loyola’s Board of Trustees, and his wife, Ellen.
In this issue, we are proud to introduce you to Raenita Fenner, Ph.D., and Megan Olsen, Ph.D., two outstanding new professors who have joined the University with the support of a $500,000 grant from the Luce Foundation, and tell you about a unique program for the caregivers of brain injury patients made possible by a grant from the Foundation for Spirituality and Medicine.

We always welcome your questions and comments and look forward to hearing from you. We hope that those who participated in Loyola's 2011 Business Leader of the Year Award Dinner enjoyed themselves! See photos from the event or watch a video of Mr. Griffin's remarks.
