Loyola University Maryland President Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., was named to the 2023 Higher Education Power List by The Daily Record.
According to The Daily Record, individuals are selected for the list because they “are helping guide their institutions in the ever-changing field of education. They are working for or with programs that aim to bring new technology or change to the region.”
This recognition comes on the heels of Sawyer landing on The Daily Record’s Power 100 List for 2022.
“Being honored in this way recognizes the exceptional work we are undertaking here at Loyola University Maryland," said Sawyer. “Loyola is proud to be educating young people as the ethical leaders that our diverse and changing world needs. The culture of innovation is alive and well at Loyola, and we are enthusiastic about how we are partnering with the broader community to bring about change.”
Sawyer became president of Loyola on Jan. 1, 2022, after 23 years serving the University in several leadership roles, including most recently as the University’s senior vice president.
Under his leadership in that role, the University raised more than $100 million in the largest campaign in Loyola’s history, growing the University’s endowment and student scholarship support. He also led the advancement team in raising funds to support strategic capital projects, including the Miguel B. Fernandez Family Center for Innovation and Collaborative Learning, which opened in Fall 2021. Earlier in his career, Sawyer was instrumental in developing and launching the York Road Initiative, where Loyola collaborates with neighbors and partners in the Govans community to bring positive change in the areas of civic capacity, education, and economic and business development.
