As we begin a new fiscal year at Loyola University Maryland, we are grateful to those of you who have provided such meaningful and important support for all of our efforts this past year. Your investments help us produce not only an educated workforce, but also an educated citizenry.
The past year began with a wonderful reception of Loyola graduates employed by McCormick and Company, and ended with a breakfast for the Maryland Chamber of Commerce Business Development Council. In between, we met many of you at our annual Business Leader of the Year dinner, the events we hosted in the Class of 1968 Greyhound suite at the Ridley Athletic Complex, as well as the first joint reception of the Columbia Foundation and Loyola in Howard County.
Because of you, Loyola’s signature programs continue to grow. The Loyola Clinical Centers is expanding its footprint to serve more clients and train more graduate students, while the York Road Initiative established a much-needed weekly farmer’s market through the efforts of its community partners.
We also launched a new corporate and foundation relations website, and I hope you will take advantage of the information it includes and links it provides to our resources, including The Career Center at Loyola, our upcoming events, and giving opportunities.
Thank you for a wonderful year. Your support and collaboration made it all possible.
Enjoy your summer!
