Father Hesburgh Today

Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., turned 96 in May 2013. He may have retired in 1987 after 35 years as Notre Dame's President, but the momentum he established as a leader in higher education, advocate for human rights, and citizen of the world continues to this day.

For Father Hesburgh, Notre Dame has always been home. Now living in Holy Cross House with other retired members of the Congregation of Holy Cross, he keeps office hours daily in the library that bears his name. He maintains his correspondence, receives visitors, keeps up with the news, and says Mass daily. His quarters abound with photos, gifts, and memorabilia from a still-full life, and he savors the view of campus from his 13th-floor window overlooking the Dome and Our Lady.
