Alumni John C. Schreiber and Kathy Schreiber donated a $10 million gift to Loyola’s Quinlan School of Business on March 20, 2014. The gift will go toward the construction of a new facility for the business school to be named the John and Kathy Schreiber Center.
Here is the full information from Father Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.:
Mr. Schreiber graduated from our school of business in 1968 and went on to Harvard Business School and a successful career in real estate investment management. He and Kathy have raised a family of eight children and have twelve grandchildren. They have dedicated their gift to F. Virgil Boyd and Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J., deans of the business school during Mr. Schreiber’s time there who provided him with inspiration and guidance. The Schreibers have been significant supporters of many educational institutions in the Chicago area, including Loyola University Chicago, where they established a scholarship endowment fund in 2008 for students from Lake County, Illinois. This $10 million donation for a new facility constitutes a special gift to Loyola University Chicago. It is a testament to the excellence of our past faculty and administrators and an investment in the future of business education at Loyola.
The Schreiber Center will be a state-of-the-art, environmentally sustainable facility that will inspire collaboration, learning, and great debate, transforming the way we deliver—and our students benefit from—our world-class business education. The 10-story building will feature advanced classrooms, innovative social spaces, and a sophisticated system of atria that will harness natural ventilation and harvest daylight, increasing energy efficiency and light throughout the facility. It is expected to be completed by August 2015.
We are very grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Schreiber for this transformational gift and for their commitment to Loyola University Chicago.
