Loyola University Maryland

Office of the President

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Loyola University Maryland. Loyola is a place uniquely well-suited not just for preparing talented individuals to excel in their chosen academic pursuits and careers, but also for inspiring the rest of their lives—mind, body, and spirit.

At Loyola, the ideals that have guided Jesuit universities for nearly 500 years—academic excellence, cura personalis, service, justice, diversity, and integrity—among others, continue to mold the academic, social, and spiritual experiences we offer our students, the programs we pursue, and the relationships we build with the communities that surround us. Our Jesuit values help our undergraduate and graduate students find direction in theirs—and to see how our enduring Ignatian principles can help us find solutions to the challenges we face in today’s world.

Today, Loyola stands at a moment of tremendous opportunity, as we look forward to welcoming the 25th president of Loyola University Maryland. I am always interested in hearing the thoughts and perspectives of those with a connection to Loyola, as well as those of prospective students, parents, and faculty, and I encourage you to direct your questions and insights to president@loyola.edu.

Amanda M. Thomas, Ph.D.
Interim President
