Notre Dame's mission to be a force for good in the world starts with the Academy.

When you make a gift designated to Notre Dame Academics, you are providing undergraduate, professional, and graduate students—the leaders of tomorrow—with the unique Notre Dame education of mind, body, and spirit. Money raised for the Academy enables Notre Dame to improve its educational experience in a host of ways, including: 

  • Hiring faculty who are leading scholars in their fields.
  • Increasing undergraduate research opportunities.
  • Innovating in academic curriculum and programming.
  • Providing resources such as tutoring and career counseling to ensure that every Notre Dame student leaves the University ready to succeed.  

In addition to bolstering educational initiatives, unrestricted academic giving provides resources for professors to perform research and publish scholarship that has a tangible impact on the world. These resources provide scholars of all disciplines with the freedom and public platform to explore the dialogue between faith and reason—a dialogue desperately needed in the increasingly secular landscape of higher education.
