Timothy S. Healy, S.J., President of Georgetown, 1976-1989
Fr. Healy came to Georgetown from the City University of New York where he was Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. During his time as President, minority enrollment increased to nearly 20%, the endowment increased nearly six-fold, and the University’s physical plant grew by 67% as he oversaw the construction of a dozen buildings, including the Yates Memorial Field House and the Leavey Center. A 1986 poll among leaders of higher education named him one of the five “most effective” university president’s in the country. Throughout his tenure as President, he remained an educator and scholar and, despite his heavy administrative responsibilities, found time to teach an English class every year. He left Georgetown in 1989 to assume the position of President of the New York Public Library.
