Terrence M. Sawyer To Become 25th President of Loyola University Maryland

MARYLAND (WBFF) -- Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., has been unanimously selected by The Loyola University Maryland Board of Trustees as the university's 25th president. “Terry values Jesuit, liberal arts education, knows Loyola’s strengths and challenges, and has a compelling, foundational vision for defining and shaping Loyola in the years ahead,” said James Forbes, ’80, chair of Loyola’s Board of Trustees. “He’s a critical thinker with a sound business sense and an appreciation for intellectual inquiry.
