Graduate Program Director Professor Patricia Mooney-Melvin

The History Department of Loyola University Chicago is excited to welcome Professor Patricia Mooney-Melvin back to her role as Graduate Program Director. Mooney-Melvin returns full-time to the Department after serving as Associate Dean and Interim Dean in the Graduate School, where she spearheaded efforts on student career pathways, diversity in the Academy, and student financial education.

On behalf of our graduate students and faculty, we extend our gratitude to outgoing Graduate Program Director Professor Michelle Nickerson. As Professor Mooney-Melvin noted: “Our graduate programs are stronger thanks to her careful stewardship.” Thank you, Professor Nickerson.
