History

Loyola College in Maryland was founded in 1852 by Fr. John Early and eight other members of the Society of Jesus, and was the first college in the United States to bear the name of Saint Ignatius Loyola. The College's first campus was on Holliday Street in downtown Baltimore. In 1855, Loyola relocated to a larger facility in the City's historic Mount Vernon neighborhood.

The College moved to its present Evergreen campus in north Baltimore in 1922. Evening classes commenced in 1942, and seven years later a graduate division in Education was established. The graduate degree program in Business Management was added in 1968, followed by graduate programs in Speech Pathology in 1971, and Finance in 1973. Today, the College's list of graduate programs has grown to include Psychology, Modern Studies, Pastoral Counseling, Computer Science, and Software Engineering.

Loyola became coeducational in 1971, following its joining with Mount Saint Agnes College, a neighboring women's college that was experiencing financial difficulties and closed following the joining. That same year, the College's Board of Trustees elected its first layman Chair. A decade later, Loyola established a separate business school - The Rev. Joseph A. Sellinger, Jr., School of Business and Management.

The 1994 approval for a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa - an honor for the Arts and Sciences faculty held by only 254 other institutions - complemented the 1988 accreditation of the Sellinger School by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. A loyal alumni population, strong corporate and civic support, and the dedication and commitment of the laity who assist the Jesuit priests in their work have all helped make Loyola the institution it is today. [http://www.loyola.edu/about/jesuitidentity/loyolahistory.html]

Loyola College in Maryland is the first college in the United States to bear the name of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, and is the ninth oldest among the nation's 28 Jesuit colleges and universities. The "Loyola College" Trustees in 1977 adopted the name "Loyola College in Maryland" to differentiate the institution from the three other Loyolas (Chicago, Los Angeles and New Orleans) and to better reflect the regional recruitment strategy that has characterized the school's dramatic growth and development from a local commuter school to a regional and residential university in the last three decades. Today, undergraduate enrollments have more than doubled since 1977, and four of every five undergraduate students comes from outside Maryland.) The Trustees had retained the word "college" in Loyola's name to underscore its primary mission as a liberal arts undergraduate institution, although The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classification categorizes Loyola as a master's university (see college for a discussion of the distinction between the two terms in American usage).

However, more recently the college has reconsidered changing its name to Loyola University Maryland to better reflect its standing as a graduate institution (for it has had graduate programs for over two decades now). The change is in line with a developing strategic plan for the institution's future, and takes into account many factors including international recognition and distinctions between the words 'college' and 'university' within that context. The name change will be completed by August of 2009 in time for the 2009-2010 academic year.

University Vision

Mission statement

Loyola College in Maryland is a Jesuit, Catholic university committed to the educational and spiritual traditions of the Society of Jesus and to the ideals of liberal education and the development of the whole person. Accordingly, the College will inspire students to learn, lead and serve in a diverse and changing world. [http://www.loyola.edu/about/jesuitidentity/index.html]

Core values

, have had a distinct way of looking at the world and the education of young Christians. The characteristic Ignatian worldview is what has set the religious order apart in both a spiritual and academic sense, a worldview that has been shared with hundreds of thousands of women and men formed by Jesuit teaching and pastoral care. Particularly, the Society of Jesus, and therefore Loyola College in Maryland, operate according to the mandate Ad maiorem Dei gloriam, directing their ends towards that which brings forth the "greater glory of God." This cornerstone of the Jesuit philosophy functions to remind students that their education is meant to be applied toward the betterment of humanity and the worship of God, in particular. Loyola focus on Cura personalis, or the education of the whole person, functions to attain that end. A broad base of knowledge, supported by a strong liberal arts core, prepares Jesuit students to undertake the goal of AMDG.

As a Jesuit, Catholic university with a 150-year history, Loyola adopts and adapts these characteristic emphases of the Ignatian heritage and reflects them in its life and work. Loyola’s Jesuit tradition was complemented and enriched by the tradition of the Mercy Sisters when the College joined with Mount Saint Agnes College in 1971. One of the particular ways in which Loyola preserves its religious heritage, while recognizing and incorporating the necessary openness to pluralism, is by encouraging all of its students and faculty to cultivate and live by its core values as before mentioned.

Vision Statement

The education of men and women of compassion and competence, imbued with the desire to seek in all things the greater glory of God, represents the enduring aspiration of the college. That ideal, first elucidated by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus and namesake of this university, continues to guide Loyola as it strives to lead students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends forward to the promise of an examined life of intellectual, social and spiritual discernment. In pursuing these goals, Loyola asserts a bold ambition: that the College will be among the top Catholic universities in the United States. The standards by which we measure that achievement will be many: the enrollment of outstanding students; the creation of a diverse and supportive community; the cultivation of a rigorous intellectual climate; the scholarly achievements of the faculty; the recognition of peers; the intellectual and professional attainments and generosity of spirit of the alumni.

Loyola will do so by providing undergraduate students with a liberal education that transforms them, that ensures they place the highest value on the intellectual life, and that instills in them an understanding that leadership and service to the world are intimately connected. Likewise, Loyola will be a recognized leader in graduate education, offering programs which are responsive to the needs of the professional and academic communities it serves, inspiring its graduate students to leadership, and inculcating in them the knowledge that service to the larger world is a defining measure of their professional responsibilities fully understood.

In all of this, Loyola remains ever mindful of the Jesuit precept that the aim of all education ultimately is the ennoblement of the human spirit. [http://www.loyola.edu/about/visionvalues/vision.html]

Location

Loyola’s Evergreen campus spans 79 wooded acres in a beautiful suburban area of Baltimore. The well-established surrounding neighborhood of Guilford is one of the oldest and most charming residential areas of the city. Only ten minutes from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Loyola students enjoy the best of both worlds. In addition, Loyola has two satellite campuses in Timonium and Columbia for graduate classes.

The University also owns 20 acres in the mountains of Western Maryland, used for the Rising Phoenix Retreat Center. The serene landscape offers a peaceful setting where individuals and groups are empowered to do the work necessary for reconnecting and renewing their heart, mind, body and spirit. The Loyola Clinical Centers are located just a short drive from the College’s main campus, in Belvedere Square. The Clinical Centers offer individuals in the community a broad range of services addressing educational, language and psychological issues.

Loyola is highly regarded for the quality of its living facilities for resident students. As noted above, Loyola was ranked first on Princeton Review's 2009 "Dorms Like Palaces" list for the best dorms in the United States.

The Sellinger School of Business and Management

The Sellinger School of Business and Management is one of the institution's two schools, the second being the College of Arts and Sciences. Loyola College first offered courses in accounting and business administration at the undergraduate level in 1937. The baccalaureate degree in business administration was first awarded in 1943 with the accounting major added shortly thereafter. Loyola introduced the Executive MBA program in 1973, the first of its kind in the Baltimore-Washington area and one of the first ten Executive MBA programs in the country. The college established the School of Business and Management in 1980 to provide strategic management for business programs, and shortly thereafter in 1984 the business school was formally named The Joseph A. Sellinger, S.J. School of Business and Management in honor of the late Reverend Joseph A. Sellinger. In 1985, the Sellinger School initiated the Fellows MBA program to serve rising young executives. To accommodate the rapid growth in its business programs, the Sellinger School moved into a new state-of-the-art facility constructed on the north side of the academic quadrangle in early 2000 (see below).

In 1988, the Sellinger School earned accreditation in all programs by AACSB (The International Association for Management Education), a designation enjoyed by fewer than 10% of all schools nationwide. Loyola College is the only private institution in the state of Maryland with a nationally accredited business school. In 1990, the Accounting Department earned specialized national accreditation from AACSB.

The Sellinger School stresses the importance of Experiential Learning, noting that such opportunity serves to enhance traditional classroom work through the integration of theory and practice. Students are offered the chance for enriched academic discussion and a broadened learning environment through Internship, International and Service-Learning Experiences.

Loyola recognizes chapters of Beta Gamma Sigma and Beta Alpha Psi, and affords students international societies such as the Financial Management Association. The Sellinger Scholars business honors program was developed to prepare highly motivated students for roles of leadership and service in a diverse and changing world. Students are invited to join in their Freshmen year based on academic achievement and must then go through an interview process.

As stated above, the Sellinger School of Business and Management was ranked number 45 in BusinessWeek magazine’s third annual “Best Undergrad B-Schools” survey, with more than 125 schools eligible for inclusion in the rankings. Additionally, U.S. News and World Report ranks Loyola College in Maryland the Number Two master’s university in the North region in its 2009 “America’s Best Colleges” survey, a distinction the college has held for ten years now.

A statue of Our Lady of Evergreen, Queen of Peace, is situated above the front façade. The chapel was formally dedicated on September 15, 1952.
*Rev. Francis X. Knott, S.J. Humanities Center

The Humanities Center was built by the Garrett family in 1895 as a wedding gift for one of their children. However, the child died during a trip to England and the large, Tudor-style mansion became a rehabilitation center for men blinded during the war. In 1921, Loyola’s Jesuits purchased the Evergreen property from the Garretts and gradually moved the College from its location on Calvert Street. The mansion was originally used for classes, but then became the Jesuit residence. In 1955, it suffered severe fire damage and was converted to offices following the restoration. Today, the Humanities Center houses 16 departments, including Admissions, Alumni Relations, Financial Aid and the Philosophy and History departments.

*Beatty HallNamed after the Rev. Vincent Beatty, S.J., a past president of Loyola, this building houses the departments of Sociology, Education, Psychology and Political Science.
