CLOSING THOUGHTS “LEAVE NO MESS.”


AS YOU KNOW, on June 30, I stepped down as president of Loyola University Chicago and transitioned to a new role as chancellor. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as Loyola’s president these last 14 years, a time of significant growth and change at the University. Loyola’s financial footing and academic programs are strong. We are attracting a large, diverse, and talented pool of students across all our disciplines, and with the removal of the final construction fences on the Lake Shore Campus, we have a beautiful and bustling home campus for our undergraduate student population. The time is ripe for a new leader to shepherd the University and our students.

and John Reinke, S.J.—have served Loyola in the role of chancellor. As such, I will serve in an advi- sory capacity to advance strategic projects, as- sist the Advancement Division with fundraising efforts, and consult on international programs. I will also continue to serve as the secretary for higher education for the Society of Jesus. With support from our interim president,


John Pelissero, PhD, our Board of Trustees, senior leadership, and all of our faculty and staff mem- bers, I am confident that this leadership transi- tion will be seamless and will attract a talented pool of Jesuit and lay applicants. I am excited to see all of our strategic initia-


tives continue to move forward: the launch of our new five-year strategic plan focused on social justice, the start of Arrupe College, the Campaign for Quinlan and the opening of the Schreiber Center, the completion of our Center


for Translational Research and Education, and our ongoing efforts to transform the John Felice Rome Center. I look forward to continuing to serve Loyola


as chancellor and to keeping in touch with our alumni near and far. Our alumni are the embodi- ment of our efforts to educate men and women with a passion for justice, and together we will continue to advance Loyola’s mission of expand- ing knowledge in the service of humanity. I am grateful to all the members of the Loyola


community who helped make the last 14 years successful: our faculty, staff, alumni, donors, community partners, and friends. And, most of all, I would like to thank our exceptional students who have been a constant source of inspiration and joy. Because of them, the future looks bright for all of us.
