Dean Michael Kaufman recently received a pair of honors emanating from his accomplished tenure at Loyola University Chicago. On October 23, 2021, Michael was presented with the Medal of Excellence by LUC’s Alumni Board of Governors in recognition of his distinguished service to the legal profession and for his loyalty and service to LUC’s School of Law. Both privately and professionally he has demonstrated the quality of character, intellect and social or professional responsibility that LUC’s School of Law nurtures. On October 24, 2021, he was inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the honor society of Jesuit colleges and universities, upon the nomination of LUC’s President and Administration.
“These honors are a testament to Michael’s dedication to Jesuit education and authentic embrace of the enduring values in the Jesuit Catholic tradition,” said Lisa Kloppenberg, Acting President of Santa Clara University and former Dean of Santa Clara Law. “We are fortunate to have his passion, devotion, and leadership now guiding Santa Clara Law.”
