Loyola has been awarded a $2 million gift from an anonymous donor, the first significant gift toward the University’s future Center for Innovation and Collaborative Learning.

The gift will help fund renovations to and an expansion of Loyola’s Beatty Hall, an academic building which was built in 1922 on the University’s Evergreen campus in Baltimore.

The renovated building will serve as an innovative and collaborative space housing academic programs, interactive creative spaces for design thinking, and the University’s newly imagined Career Center.An aerial view of the rendering of the new Beatty Hall and Center for Innovation and Collaborative Learning on the Evergreen campus.

“The Center for Innovation and Collaborative Learning will not only inspire active, collaborative learning, but also offer our students an opportunity to spark their creativity and awaken their entrepreneurial spirit,” said Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., senior vice president.

“Gifts like this one make it possible for Loyola to continue to offer an exceptional education and experience to our students that prepares them for today’s careers and tomorrow’s. We are so grateful to every member of the Loyola community who chooses to invest in strengthening Loyola University Maryland through their support.”

The $2 million gift is a contribution to Loyola’s Bright Minds, Bold Hearts comprehensive campaign to raise $100 million for strategic academic, athletics, and service initiatives. The campaign will close later this year.
