There and Back Again: Gifts from my Jesuit Education

Scholar and Loyola graduate KerryAnn O’Meara, Ph.D., will deliver the next lecture in Loyola University Maryland’s Green & Grey Alumni Speaker Series on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. in the 4th Floor Program Room. 

O’Meara’s experiences as a student with the Center for Community Service and Justice and as an English major fueled her interest in equity and full participation in higher education. She will speak to the lasting gifts of her Jesuit education—gifts which, she says, act as “light in dark places” and inspire her life as a social scientist studying higher education, and as a mentor, parent, partner, and friend.

The lecture is free and open to the public; however, registration is encouraged.

About the Speaker Series

Each year at homecoming, the Green & Grey Alumni Speakers Series will invite alumni who were members of Loyola’s Green & Grey Society to speak on campus. As undergraduates, this group represented a cross-section of undergraduate communities and leadership paths at the University. As alumni, Green & Grey graduates have pursued a wide range of fields and have made indelible marks in their fields. From professors to artists, to politicians to musicians, business tycoons to leaders in medicine and law, these Loyola graduates have forged paths in virtually every arena. The seeds planted during those undergraduate years continue to flourish and nurture their influence on a diverse and changing world. As alumni of influence who embody our University motto, “Strong Truths Well Lived,” these graduates demonstrate the impact of a Loyola education. View presentations from past speakers.
