Loyola University Chicago Elects Jo Ann Rooney as President Effective August 1, 2016

Jo Ann Rooney, JD, LLM, EdD, has been elected by the Loyola University Chicago Board of Trustees as the University's 24th president and its first lay leader. Dr. Rooney was approved by the Board on May 19, 2016 and officially introduced to the campus community. On August 1, 2016, Dr. Rooney will assume the role of president with an appointment that runs through 2021. She will succeed John P. Pelissero, PhD, who has served as interim president since July 2015, when long-serving president Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., stepped down and transitioned to the role of chancellor. This new appointment expands Dr. Rooney's leadership in higher education, as she has served as the president of both Spalding University and Mount Ida College, a baccalaureate-level college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in Newton, Massachusetts. She has also spent more than 12 years in the classroom connecting with students and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Loyola University Chicago, Loyola University Health System, and Trinity Health Unveil Center for Translational Research and Education

Loyola University Chicago opened an innovative medical research and education center April 21 on its Health Sciences Division campus in Maywood, Illinois. The five-story, $137 million Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE) is the collaborative initiative of Loyola University Chicago, Loyola University Health System, and Trinity Health. The 225,000 square-foot building will house 500 students, faculty, and staff. The CTRE includes two two-story atriums to promote outside-the-lab collaboration, a 90-seat seminar room, and a 265-seat auditorium for lectures and health-related community events. The CTRE features large, open lab spaces, making it easier for researchers from different teams and scientific disciplines to interact and share equipment. The second and third floors are connected by internal stairs, enabling researchers to share a common meeting space and kitchen. The fourth and fifth floors have similar collaboration spaces. The CTRE was jointly funded by Loyola University Chicago and Trinity Health, which acquired Loyola University Health System in 2011.
