Loyola saddened by the closing of the Institute of Notre Dame

Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola University Maryland, released this statement in response to the news that the Institute of Notre Dame will close its doors on June 30, 2020.

“Since 1847, the Institute of Notre Dame has offered an outstanding Catholic education to generations of young women, graduating many successful alumnae who serve their communities in numerous ways. Over the years, many IND graduates have taught, served, and studied at Loyola, blending the charism of the School Sisters of Notre Dame so effectively with the traditions and values of the Society of Jesus. There is no good time to receive such terrible news, but receiving it during the month of May, which is dedicated to Our Lady, seems particularly sad. On behalf of the Loyola community, I extend our sympathy and support to the School Sisters of Notre Dame and all those members of the close-knit IND family who are such a positive force within the greater Baltimore community.”
