Georgetown Jesuits graphed on a downswing

georgetown_jesuits_in_declineIt’s Jesuit Heritage Week, which means it’s time to analyze Georgetown’s Jesuits steadily declining numbers!

News will have updated numbers later this week, but the numbers above, which Fr. John Langan provided last year, reveal that as of 2008, Georgetown housed 55 Jesuits, as opposed to 85 in in 1986 and about 100 in 1966.

The little red dot, as noted by the frustratingly small key, represents the number of Georgetown Jesuits actually teaching in Georgetown classrooms—35—as opposed to simply housed in Wolfington Hall.  Obdura!
