Diversity and Inclusion

In Pope Francis’ Open Wide our Hearts: the enduring call to love, a pastoral letter against racism, he reminds us, “For a nation to be just, it must be a society that recognizes and respects the legitimate rights of individuals and peoples. These rights precede any society because they flow from the dignity granted to each person as created by God.”

Notre Dame is called to live the Mercy Core Value of Justice.

We believe ordering of right relationships with all persons and all creation is fundamental to our advocacy for structures that protect the vulnerable.
