About the Patrick Healy Dinner

Reverend Patrick Francis Healy became the president of Georgetown University in 1874. Born enslaved in 1834, he is considered to be the second founder of Georgetown. By racial classification standards, Patrick Healy, S.J., was the first Black man to earn a doctorate and the first to head a Jesuit university in the United States. In 1975, Georgetown University’s Black alumni began honoring the legacy of this great man by establishing a dinner and scholarship in his name. The annual Patrick Healy Dinner was founded as an official university event in 1992 and was placed under the direction of the African American Advisory board in 2002. Since then, the Patrick Healy Dinner and Scholarship have helped many Black students meet the financial burden of attending Georgetown.

Now a signature event under the Georgetown University Alumni Association Black Alumni Council, the annual Patrick Healy Dinner celebrates the achievements of Georgetown’s Black alumni, students, faculty, and staff. Proceeds from the dinner support the Patrick Healy Scholarship, which promotes diversity at Georgetown by providing assistance to students who have demonstrated financial need for scholarship aid.
