Following an acrimonious election season, the University of Notre Dame invited the campus community to take part in an interfaith prayer service on Nov. 14 to pray for peace for the nation, wisdom for leaders and care for the most vulnerable.
Nine University of Notre Dame graduate students will compete for prize money and a bid to the regional championships during the Three Minute Thesis competition on March 16. Known as 3MT, the competition features graduate students across all disciplines explaining their research in clear and succinct language appropriate for an audience of specialists and non-specialists alike, all within three minutes.
University of Notre Dame alumnus Raymond T. Duncan, his wife, Sally, and their family have made a gift to his alma mater for construction of the new west building of the Campus Crossroads Project. In recognition of the gift, the University will name the building the Duncan Student Center.
“We are immensely grateful to Ray and Sally and the Duncan family for this latest example of their extraordinary support of Notre Dame students, and for their leadership in helping secure Notre Dame’s future," said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the University’s president. “The Duncan Student Center will enhance a wide array of much-needed services for our students and have a lasting impact for many generations to come.”
Students face many decisions during their time at Notre Dame, including important choices about their future after graduation. These choices will begin to shape them as individuals and the potential impact they will have on the world.
Career services at Notre Dame offer a holistic approach to helping students find their calling through a number of resources and experiences. These services and programs are about to be significantly enhanced as a result of the Campus Crossroads project.
