Loyola University Maryland
April 23, 2020
The Catholic Volunteer Network (CVN) has named Loyola University Maryland a Top School for Service, including Loyola as one of only seven universities in the Mid-Atlantic to receive this achievement.
Twenty-eight institutions have been named as part of the CVN’s National Volunteer Week initiative.
The award highlights the work by Loyola’s office of Campus Ministry, the Center for Community Service and Justice (CCSJ), and the Career Services to offer service-learning opportunities and support young adults by advocating for post-graduate service programs.
“Being recognized as one of the Catholic Volunteer Network’s Top Schools for Service says so much about how Loyola lives its mission,” said Pat Cassidy, assistant director of immersion programs. “Loyola’s partnerships with resident leaders and community organizations throughout York Road and Baltimore City inform our students’ understanding of community engagement and civic responsibility. The professional experience and the personal and spiritual growth that Loyola graduates encounter through post-graduate service builds upon the academic, social, and civic learning they gain while at Loyola. It’s a real honor to be recognized for the work that so many different individuals and departments across our university contribute towards supporting student learning and growth through engagement with community.”
