A Message from Executive Director Kara Vincent

Kara VincentThe Jesuits speak of constantly challenging ourselves to strive for the magis—the greater, the more. At the Loyola Clinical Centers (LCC) that means working to provide the best possible care to our clients, families, and caregivers.

With excellent clinical care facilities and exceptional graduate education, the LCC is uniquely poised to provide that care. Within the LCC, we mentor one another and support our students who learn in the Ignatian spirit. We challenge our students daily, and they in turn challenge us.

The work of the LCC is even more distinctive and impactful, however, because of the connections that occur outside the classroom. As men and women for and with others, we at the LCC embrace our entire Loyola community of students, faculty, staff, and administrators. As part of this Loyola family, we also welcome our neighbors in the greater Baltimore area. LCC faculty members integrate community engagement into the students’ educational experiences, enriching student learning as well as offering opportunities to make a difference in the community. After all, our mission calls us to serve the most vulnerable and underserved.

American writer and management consultant Margaret J. Wheatley said, “There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”

I invite you to join us on this journey as we discover what our Loyola and Baltimore communities care most about—and bring about change through each personal interaction we offer at the LCC. Help us strive for the magis by achieving and offering more to our community and to one another.
