A Note from Dean Miracky
I hope you have all enjoyed a happy and healthy summer, with plenty of time for relaxation, reconnection, and travels with family and friends. Those of us on the Loyola campus are excitedly awaiting the start of the Fall 2012 semester, and the arrival of our new and returning undergraduate and graduate students.
Our distinguished faculty members have remained hard at work this summer, on campus and off, pursuing the original research and scholarly projects that have helped so many of them become and remain leaders in their fields, as well as valued mentors to our students. You’ll meet four of them in this issue of the newsletter—a tiny fraction of the talented and committed men and women who teach, collaborate with, and inspire our students throughout the year. It’s always a pleasure for me to learn more about their work, and to share it with our alumni, parents, and other friends.
If you’ve given some thought to embracing the spirit of lifelong learning and returning to Loyola to pursue a graduate degree, there is no better time to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities we provide for working professionals to strengthen their credentials, advance their careers, or even consider transitioning into a new field. In fact, in several of our programs, you can apply now and begin classes right after Labor Day. For more information on how to apply to our master’s degree programs in liberal studies, computer science, software engineering, or theology, click here. Classes are also forming in the graduate programs in the Sellinger School of Business and Management: the Professional’s MBA, MBA Fellows, Executive MBA, and Master of Science in Finance. For more information on those programs and how to apply, click here.
I hope to see you all on campus or at a University event this fall. To stay-up-to-date on events and activities taking place at Loyola, be sure to find us on Facebook, where we share all the latest news affecting the University.
