Several faculty and staff members have joined together to thank Marc Manganaro for his years of leadership as provost at Loyola.

Early in the semester, former provost Marc Manganaro resigned from his position. Shortly after, many faculty members voted to show their gratitude and continued support for Manganaro for his “energetic and dedicated leadership” in addressing the university’s financial crisis.

“We appreciate the courage, integrity and openness he has shown in his efforts to make Loyola a better place,” they wrote in the motion.

The motions passed by the university library and University Senate added to the motions by the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Music and Fine Arts and comment on the demonstration of the Jesuit value of being a person for and with others, “exemplified in his commitment to academic excellence, and in his consistent support of our students and faculty.”

Alice Clark, director of medieval studies and member of the University Senate, said she wants people to know that the faculty still supports Manganaro after his resignation.

“The faculty as a whole feels a special kind of gratitude to him, enough to take what is, as far as I know, an unprecedented step in expressing that gratitude corporately and publicly through a senate resolution,” Clark said.

These motions show that Manganaro still has the fundamental confidence of the faculty.

“It will not be easy for an outsider to do that work effectively, and I hope the person who is selected will rely on the deans and the faculty as a whole for help,” Clark said.
