ND President Addresses Faculty
We must remain vigilant about the percentage of new hires who are Catholic, devise strategies to attract superb Catholic scholars, and explain why we do so. Through a gift from the Don and Mickie Keough family, we have recently created an office under the leadership of Fr. Bob Sullivan to identify Catholic scholars who are academically suitable candidates for positions at Notre Dame. And, again through the generosity of the Keough family, I am very pleased to announce today that we will establish two Keough–Hesburgh chairs for which we will seek truly outstanding Catholic scholars in any field who are committed to and will enhance our Catholic mission.
