Alumna Gifts Loyola University Md. $1.75M To Create Peace & Justice Program

BALTIMORE (AP) — Loyola University Maryland is receiving a $1.75 million gift to form a new program in peace and justice studies.

The college says Mary Catherine Bunting of Ruxton, Md., a 1964 alumna of Mount St. Agnes College, is making the gift to create the new program named in her honor. The undergraduate program will also host a speaker series.

The college says the donation is one of the largest program-specific gifts in its history. Loyola joined with Mount St. Agnes College in 1971.

In a statement, Bunting says “a little money going into peace is much better than all of the money going into war.”

Bunting is a retired certified nurse practitioner and was a one-time nun with the Sisters of Mercy.

The new program is expected to launch in 2014.
