Loyola parents with their students

Loyola University Maryland enjoys a strong relationship with the parents of its students and alumni. We work in partnership to strengthen the hearts and minds of our students, as well as our programs and educational opportunities. At Loyola, we take great pride in how parents are involved in the success of our students.

Parents Council

The Parents Council is a group of dedicated parents of current students that seek to develop and strengthen meaningful relationships between fellow parents and Loyola University Maryland. Members endorse Loyola’s mission by supporting the University with a leadership gift, promoting annual donations by parents, hosting or co-sponsoring events, and encouraging attendance at regional and on campus parent events.

Your role as a Parents Council member:

  • Act as advocates for Loyola University Maryland in your hometown by promoting Loyola’s mission and the quality of education.
  • Support the Annual Fund with a personal leadership gift of $1,852 or more.
  • Host a gathering of incoming area students to welcome them to the Loyola community.
  • Connect with new Loyola parents to encourage their support of the Annual Fund.
  • Collaborate with Loyola’s Career Center to bring internship and hiring opportunities to our students.
