 Jesuit Alumni in the Obama Administration and 112th U.S. Congress
WASHINGTON, DC - Ten percent of the 112th U.S. Congress are Jesuit college and university alumni/ae. Among the 535 Members of this Congress, 54 of them are alumni/ae of Jesuit institutions. At least 30 alums also serve in appointed positions in the Obama Administration.
There are 12 Jesuit alumni/ae in the Senate and 42 in the House of Representatives. Among the top leadership, Congressmen John Boehner (R-OH) is serving as Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD) serves as the House Minority Whip. In the Senate, Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL) continues as the Assistant Majority Leader.
Of these 54 alumni/ae, 36 received graduate or professional degrees from Jesuit universities. There are 18 Jesuit institutions represented by alumni/ae in the U.S. Congress. Georgetown University has the most alumni/ae with a total of 18; followed by Boston College with 7; the College of the Holy Cross and Fordham University each tied with 4; while Creighton University, Marquette University, and the University of Detroit Mercy each have 3.
"With the many challenges facing our nation, we are happy that our Jesuit college and university alumni/ae continue to play important roles in Congress and the Administration,” said AJCU President Fr. Charles Currie, S.J. “Their commitment to lead and to serve is in the best Jesuit tradition.”
