Terre Ryan, Ph.D., an associate professor of writing, was born in New Jersey and has lived in many places, including Ohio, Montana, Nevada, and France. She received her MBA from Baruch College/City University in New York and holds a Ph.D. in Literature with a major in American Environmental Writing from the University of Nevada. Dr. Ryan says she found the perfect fit at Loyola in 2011, when the university was looking for a professor to teach environmental writing. One of her passions is sustainability, and while at Loyola she created opportunities inside and outside of the classroom to raise awareness for sustainability and food justice. Not only does she teach students about food insecurity in Baltimore; she also volunteers for Loaves and Fishes, a program that meets monthly to prepare and deliver food to homeless Baltimore residents. Dr. Ryan values both the Jesuit tradition and a liberal arts education at Loyola, citing both as crucial for students. “A liberal arts education prepares you for life, and a Jesuit education prepares students to live as active participants in our democracy. I appreciate the Jesuit emphasis on justice. In particular, the Jesuit value of personalized cura, guides his teaching and advice. “I am deeply invested in student success. I also regularly incorporate work on social justice into my classes. Alongside her teaching, in 2021 Dr. Ryan began working at Loyola’s National Scholarship Office to provide opportunities for students to fund their education, research, and travel.
