All Things Jesuit

Ignatius goes to Washington

January 20, 2011

The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) has compiled a list of Jesuit-educated members who are serving in the 112th Congress and the Obama Administration. "Ten percent of the 112th U.S. Congress are Jesuit college and university alumni/ae. Among the 535 Members of this Congress, 53 of them are alumni/ae of Jesuit institutions. At least 30 alums also serve in appointed positions in the Obama Administration," according to AJCU. Not too shabby considering that the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the U.S. represent a tiny fraction of the thousands of institutions in the country!
