Address by Georgetown University President Robert J. Henle, S.J. at the Faculty Convocation Ceremony
Henle, R. J. (Robert John), 1909-2000
This speech is the first time that Father Robert J. Henle officially addressed the faculty. He announced the closing of the first major university fund-raising campaign and talked about the fund-raising goals and totals. He also talked about how three new libraries will be open---on the main campus, the law center, and the medical campus. He gave the president's medal to T. Byron Collins, S.J. for his work in forming a consortium of Washington D.C. area universities and health agencies in need of construction funds and his successful efforts lobbying Congress for these funds. Father Henle also talked about the concept of "in loco parentis" and what the relationship between educational staff and student body should be. He also urged the faculty and administrators to build a greater sense of pride in the institution of Georgetown University.
