The Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., President of Loyola University Maryland, brings a wealth of experience as an educator deeply immersed in the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence and the promotion of faith and justice.

Born August 25, 1955, Fr. Linnane entered the Society of Jesus in 1977, and was ordained to the Roman Catholic priesthood on June 14, 1986. He earned an A.B. degree, magna cum laude, from Boston College in 1977 and an M.A. from Georgetown University's Department of Government in 1981 before undertaking divinity studies at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, where he received a master's degree in 1986 and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology in 1988. He earned master's degrees from the Yale Department of Religious Studies in 1990 and 1991, and a Ph.D. in religious studies concentrating in religious ethics in 1994.

Fr. Linnane joined the Religious Studies Department at Holy Cross in 1994. His scholarly publications are extensive, covering the disciplines of fundamental moral theology, health care ethics and virtue ethics. He served as Assistant Dean at Holy Cross from 2003 to 2005 and was named a Loyola University Maryland Trustee in 2000. He currently serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the College of the Holy Cross; the Institute of Christian and Jewish Studies; the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Baltimore; and the Board of Directors of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. He is President of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, Secretary/Treasurer of the Executive Committee of the Maryland Independent College and University Association, and a member of the NCAA Division I Committee on Athletics Certification.
