Hesburgh Lecture Series
Since 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture Series provides an opportunity to
experience Notre Dame’s academic excellence to the Notre Dame clubs and
their local communities. The lectures perpetuate the example of
President Emeritus Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., as a lifelong learner, and further the
mission of the Alumni Association by providing meaningful continuing
education opportunities to Notre Dame alumni, parents, and friends.
The Hesburgh Lecture Series continues with exciting speakers presenting topics that affect many in the world around us. Dates are being finalized with the University, please watch NDCD emails as well as check back with the website for updates.
