Innovation at ND - Guest Speakers

Each year, a diverse group of speakers provide students with real-world information and application of topics learned in class as well as personal experience. Science speakers, authors, Holocaust survivors and college admissions deans regularly visit our campus. 

Here are just a few examples:

Holocaust Survivor Story

At Notre Dame, all sophomores study the Holocaust across English, history, and religious studies as part of an integrated curriculum. Students read several accounts of the Holocaust as part of their studies, but the key cornerstone of that learning experience is hearing the testimony of a survivor. 

Learning the Realities of Homelessness in Silicon Valley

Notre Dame juniors and seniors spend time learning about the harsh realities of homelessness in Silicon Valley this week.

Learning About Local Government

Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, Supervisor Cindy Chavez and Congressman Ro Khanna have been speakers and visitor to campus.

ND Reads

Each year Notre Dame hosts an author visit in conjunction with our annual ND Reads selection. This year, Reyna Grande discusses her memoir, A Dream Called Home. Visit our ND Reads webpage to learn more.

Alums Return for Career Day
