Kappa Delta Pi mourns the passing of the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame. Considered one of the most influential figures in higher education, Hesburgh served as president of Notre Dame from 1952 to 1987, helping to transform the previously small school into a premier national university. Highlighting his many prestigious honors are 16 presidential appointments, including as a founding member of the Commission on Civil Rights in 1957; 150 honorary degrees, the most ever awarded to one person; the Congressional Gold Medal, the first ever given to someone from higher education; and the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. He was invited to the Laureate Chapter in 1970.

A champion for human rights, the cause of peace, and care for the poor, Hesburgh was known as being equally comfortable mingling with students as he was with world leaders.
