Earlier this month, the Ignatian Solidarity Network (ISN) announced its decision to grant the Robert M. Holstein ‘Faith Doing Justice’ Award to Fr. Michael Garanzini, S.J. for his outstanding service to the marginalized, care for creation, and advocacy for social justice.
For 14 years, Fr. Garanzini served as the 23rd president of Loyola University Chicago (LUC), and he is now serving as University Chancellor. Instrumental in making LUC one of the most sustainable campuses in the country, Fr. Garanzini is deeply committed to care for creation. Fr. Garanzini was among those who took the initiative to establish Arrupe College, a two-year associate’s degree program for motivated students with limited financial resources, housed at LUC. Fr. Garanzini is also a leader in Catholic higher education, previously serving as ACCU Board Chair.
To honor Fr. Garanzini, ISN will host a cocktail reception at LUC’s Water Tower campus in Chicago on Wednesday, April 27. Congratulations, Fr. Garanzini!
