The University of Notre Dame promotes a spirit of diversity and inclusion through academic inquiry, and programs and opportunities that reflect our foundational belief in the dignity of all men and women.
We invite you to explore the stories and activities that bring life to this important aspect of Notre Dame.
University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. and the President’s Oversight Committee on Diversity and Inclusion invite us to take time as a community on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and in the week that follows—which we have come to call Walk the Walk Week—to both celebrate the diversity that currently exists on our campus and reflect on how might we each take an active role in making Notre Dame even more welcoming and inclusive.
University Statement on Diversity and Inclusion
"In our commitment to diversity, we hope to reflect a global Church that is richly diverse ethnically and culturally, yet bound together in a family extending across the whole of the earth."
– Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., President
