Graduate Student Award Recipients

The Reverend John E. Wise, S.J., Medal Distinguished Achievement in Education

Wise Medal is given each year by the faculty of Loyola University Maryland’s School of Education to one graduating student “who has demonstrated excellence in scholarship and outstanding service to Loyola University Maryland and the community as exemplified by Rev. John E. Wise, S.J.” Fr. Wise, truly the father of today’s vast graduate education programs at Loyola, was first of all a reflective and prayerful priest committed to social responsibility and justice, a scholar who wrote two textbooks and provocative journal articles, a talented and caring teacher, and a dedicated community servant.

The Reverend John E. Wise, S.J., Medal recipient: Caroline Eileen Mills Dr. Barry K. Estadt Medal Excellence in Pastoral Counseling Barry Estadt, Ph.D., is the visionary who founded Loyola’s pastoral counseling department in 1975.
