Graduate Student Award Recipients

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

The Reverend John E.

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: Sylvia Casteleyn Doud 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. The award honors his student-centered focus by recognizing a graduate student in pastoral counseling who demonstrates excellent achievement in academic, clinical, and research areas while exhibiting a pastoral presence.
