Beyond the Dome: Notre Dame's commitment to internationalization

Author: Colleen Wilcox

To prepare students for leadership roles in a changing global landscape, we are bringing Notre Dame to the world and the world to Notre Dame….” -President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.

There is power in that statement. Intention. The message is also tangible.

The University’s commitment to internationalization is demonstrated through the opening of the Keough School of Global Affairs in 2017, Notre Dame’s first new school in nearly a century; the development of diverse academic programs and study abroad opportunities; the recruitment of more international students and faculty; the financial support of collaborative and innovative faculty research abroad; and the deepening existing of global partnerships and programs and the genesis of even more.

While all departments and divisions are called to take part in the extension of the University’s global reach and impact, Notre Dame International and the Keough School of Global Affairs are the catalysts in what is an extraordinarily dynamic time in Notre Dame’s history.
