Timeline of Major Events During Father O'Connell's Presidency

This timeline contains selected highlights and events during the tenure of Very Rev. David M. O’Connell, C.M.,  as president of The Catholic University of America. The smaller number of events in the early years reflects the limited availability of digital records from that period. It is by no means an exhaustive list.

How to use the interactive timeline

The timeline displays in two bands; the upper band has links to significant events which, when clicked, will display a bubble with additional information and frequently a link to a press release or other online resource. The lower band can be used to move quickly between years.  It will cause the upper band to scroll more quickly.

To scroll either band, click and hold the band and drag your mouse.

The interactive timeline  loads on April 1, 2010.
