About the Global Forum:

The 2017-18 Notre Dame Forum explores the challenges and opportunities posed by globalization. Through a series of debates and discussions of major policy issues, we will encourage sustained reflection on how faculty, staff and students can incorporate a morally grounded global awareness into our research, teaching, practice and service. All are encouraged to consider how to engage with the Forum topic and extend the dialogue into the classroom, lab, studio, and workplace. Such participation can transform the Forum from a series of lectures into a true campus-wide conversation.

Since its establishment in 2005 by Notre Dame’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the Notre Dame Forum has addressed timely topics from multiple perspectives. What began as a one-day event has since evolved into a yearlong examination of a specific issue, with featured talks by leading authorities, classroom discussions, panels, workshops, symposia, and other events – all with the purpose of enlightening the campus community and elevating our dialogue.

The first Forum explored the role of faith in a pluralistic society. Subsequent Forums have explored global health, immigration, sustainability, the global marketplace, K-12 education, democracy and faith, women in leadership, and other topics. More information on these and upcoming events can be found on the Forum website.
