Office of the President
Notre Dame in Rome
MLK Day Commemoration and Walk the Walk Week
Welcome to the University of Notre Dame, where scholars across the generations have labored to realize our founding institutional vision to become a wellspring of hearts and minds devoted to the common good.
A Notre Dame education forms the whole person. As president, I have the pleasure of seeing this happen every day in our classrooms, laboratories, studios and recital halls. Our abiding commitment to undergraduate education and world-class research grow together out of this lively pursuit of knowledge and truth, this abundant experience of community, friendship and service to humanity.
Notre Dame is a place where matters of faith are addressed with respect; where the wisdom of religious tradition sheds new light upon the most pressing concerns of our own time. It is a Catholic university where tomorrow’s leaders in the arts and letters, in the sciences, the professions and civil society cultivate both technical proficiency and an ethical, moral and spiritual integrity that lasts a lifetime.
This is the Notre Dame I came to love while living in Grace Hall and studying philosophy in the 1970s. It’s the Notre Dame where I returned to teach philosophy and serve the students as a priest of Notre Dame’s founding order, the Congregation of Holy Cross. It’s the Notre Dame that later called me to further service as its 17th president. I hope your visit to our website encourages you to visit us in person soon.

We urge the president to continue to give status to young people who have done nothing wrong, most of whom have only known life in the United States and who will make important contributions to it. Notre Dame intends to support these students and asks the administration to do the same.
