Faculty Reflect on 25 Years of the Hesburgh Lecture Series
“Questions and problems continue to challenge us, and given the excellence of today’s faculty, it is a true blessing to have them stimulate and provoke thoughtful dialogue in your communities”
Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus
Since 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture Series has brought a taste of Notre Dame’s academic excellence to alumni and their local communities. The lectures, hosted by Notre Dame clubs, have perpetuated the example of President Emeritus Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., as a lifelong learner.
From seven lectures in the first year, the portfolio of lecture topics has expanded to 207 in 2010, presented by 95 faculty members on topics related to church, communications, ethics, family life, government, politics, science concerns, spirituality and others.
Each year, almost 5,000 alumni and friends attend a Hesburgh Lecture. Learn more about the Hesburgh Lecture Series and how your Notre Dame club can participate in and benefit from this opportunity.
