At the 2015 Faculty and Staff Convocation on Aug. 17, University President the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J. addressed important issues affecting the Loyola community.

The convocation opened with an official welcoming of faculty and staff new to the Loyola community. Wildes then spoke about the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the announcement of the Presidential Advisory Group’s preliminary program review, and the new school year, which will welcome 664 first-year students.

“This is a very challenging time for all of us,” Wildes said, regarding the preliminary program review. “We will emerge a stronger and more sustainable university.”
