Loyola celebrates new business school building
The Loyola community celebrated the opening of the Schreiber Center, the new home of the Quinlan School of Business, with a ribbon cutting and building blessing on August 27. About the Schreiber Center →
“This is an exciting day for the University, as we dedicate the state-of-the-art, game-changing Schreiber Center,” said John Pelissero, PhD, Loyola’s interim president.
“This building is the physical realization of our strategic goals for the Quinlan School of Business. With the leadership of Dean Stevens and the completion now of our Water Tower Campus facilities, we are poised to leverage our world-class education and to benefit from a solid financial foundation to become a leader in business education.”
Dean Kevin Stevens added, “I believe we have the best business building in the city of Chicago and probably in the United States. What strikes me the most about the building is that the only thing between our students and faculty and the community of Chicago is a thin pane of glass. The building invites people in and challenges us to move out into the business community.”
Marketing Department Chair Mary Ann McGrath, business student Peter Hutz, and Sr. Jean Dolores Schmidt, BVM, also spoke at the ceremony. Frank LaRocca, S.J., Quinlan’s assistant dean for international initiatives, performed the building blessing.
In addition to members of the Loyola community, the ceremony was attended by members of the Quinlan Dean’s Board of Advisors and The Campaign for Quinlan Leadership Committee, as well as representatives of architectural firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Power Construction.
