Going Global: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization
Notre Dame is embarking on an ambitious plan to "go global." In this effort, we seek to further internationalize the curriculum, the student body and the faculty; to extend our institutional, scholarly and educational presence around the world; and, to deepen understanding of foreign cultures and societies while being attentive to America’s changing role in the world.

Denis McDonough and Andrew Card spoke to an audience of more than 1,100 as part of the 2017 Notre Dame Forum, “Going Global: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization.”
