Where We’re Going
At a time when the lives of many have been dramatically disrupted and work, education and society’s functions are in a state of constant transition, this new series from ThinkND will explore this point in history and how the work happening on Notre Dame’s campus and beyond relates to and impacts the United States and the world at large.
Where We’re Going will select a relevant theme each month, and participants will be invited to join three or four weekly events to hear from faculty and industry practitioners and participate in discussions to enhance their understanding of the topics.
The first installment will focus on Global Citizenship and feature campus, national, and international perspectives from faculty, students, and practitioners in the global community. As global forces — such as the COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, employment instability, and polarized politics — increasingly remind us of our interconnectedness, regardless of our physical location, the global citizen strives to live a purposeful life while making the world a more fair, equitable, and sustainable place.
Future themes will include sports, privacy, healthcare, education, climate and sustainability, a retrospective on the 2020 election, family, and individual wellness.
