The year 2016 saw historic firsts and groundbreaking achievements from our faculty, students and for the University as a whole. The year began with a week of events that challenged the Notre Dame community to take the next step in becoming a more inclusive and diverse community. As the year drew to a close, those ideals took on new meaning as the campus gathered to reflect on a tumultuous election season. In between, our research enterprise marked new heights in both funding and in the opening of facilities that will become venues for achievement in the future. Below are selected stories that paint the picture of 2016 at Notre Dame.
