Loyola University New Orleans Receives Board of Regents Funding for Catholic Studies

According to a Loyola University New Orleans' press release:

...[T]he Louisiana Board of Regents announced this week it is contributing $400,000 to support the university’s scholarly activities and programming in that field. The funding will match a private donation of $1.3 million to endow The Rev. Stephen Duffy Chair in Catholic Studies at Loyola University, the South’s largest Catholic, Jesuit higher education institution.

...The chair is named for the late religious studies professor, the Rev. Stephen Duffy, Ph.D., who died March 2007. Duffy taught at Notre Dame Seminary for more than 20 years before serving on the faculty at Loyola from 1971 to 2007. He received Loyola’s highest honor for faculty as the Dux Academicus Award winner in 1999.

Years before he passed away, Duffy included Loyola in his estate plans in order to establish an endowed chair for Catholic studies. “It was important to Fr. Duffy that his gift would ensure that study of Catholic theology would continue to take place at a high level at Loyola,” said Robert Gross, Loyola’s director of planned giving.
