Loyola University Maryland

Office of the President

Loyola's 25th President

President Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D.

Loyola University Maryland is a transformational place. We are part of the oldest, continuous education system in the history of the world, and we are the only Jesuit university in Baltimore—and in the state of Maryland. This means that values, ethics, and a commitment to justice matter here and we prepare students not just for professional success, but also to live and lead with purpose.

Here at Loyola, our faculty, staff, and administrators are teachers and mentors. Our students learn and engage in the community—within Loyola and throughout Baltimore—in meaningful ways. Our alumni graduate ready to live, lead, and serve in our diverse and changing world. Today, we recognize that this is our time. Together we can strengthen our connections throughout Greyhound Nation, deepen our commitment to our Jesuit, Catholic values, create a vision that includes all voices, and chart a path that embraces the best of the past and boldly envisions the future.

As we continue on this journey, we embrace the Jesuit ideals to live for and with others, all for the greater glory of God. As we do, please reach out with questions and insights to president@loyola.edu.

Let’s meet the moment together. For the greater glory of God. AMDG.

Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D.
