Office of the Dean
A Message from Dean Chester Gillis
As a faculty member in the Department of Theology since 1988, I have long been a part of the unrivaled scholarship and unmatched tradition that thrives here at Georgetown College. I have given more tests and graded more exams than I care to count; but, more important, I have also come to know many talented students. As a scholar, I have benefited from the University’s presence as an internationally renowned institution for Catholic theological research and interreligious dialogue.
As a Hoya fan, I have immersed myself in the spirit of our teams, cheering with their highs and commiserating with their (very rare) lows.
And as a father, I felt pride as I watched my daughter walk across the stage and graduate with the Class of 2008. For the past 20 years, my world has revolved around Georgetown. I “bleed Hoya blue” in every sense of the phrase.
Thus, it is with profound honor and excitement that I begin my new role in service to Georgetown College as Dean.
