Center for Global Leadership

Inspiring Compassionate, Global Leaders


Notre Dame’s new Center for Global Leadership realizes the Academy’s Strategic Vision 2015-2020 goal to educate, empower, and inspire women to be compassionate leaders in a global society. The Center is inspired by the legacy of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who live and serve on five continents, and will equip Notre Dame students to become informed global citizens.

The new Center will be located in Notre Dame’s iconic Mansion, which has been home to the Academy’s World Languages program for every young woman who has attended Notre Dame since 1944.

World Religions teacher Nora Moffat was recently appointed Director for the Center for Global Leadership. “There is a very clear vision for the Center, which represents the rigorous and comprehensive work of faculty and administrative leaders over the past two years and direction from Dr. Judith Dwyer, our President,” said Moffat. “The Center is more than just an opportunity to offer student travel and exchanges. We are creating global partnerships that will bring students and teachers from around the world to learn and solve problems together.”

Programmatic goals for the inaugural year of the Center include

  • Creation of a new Global Citizen Scholar Program which will provide accepted ninth-grade students with an intentional academic and extracurricular path that focuses on global themes and issues through course requirements, cross-cultural experiences, educational and community-engagement, international travel and participation in globally focused domestic programs. Students who complete the four-year program will receive designation as a Global Citizen Scholar on their official transcript. Learn more here.
  • Development of learning partnerships with sister schools around the world to encourage international student collaborations, travel exchanges, and shared teaching and learning opportunities. Notre Dame currently has partnerships with four schools in Asia that include China, Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore. This partnership will expand to schools in South America, Australia, Europe, Africa, and Canada in the future.
  • Curriculum enhancements based on a global learning rubric that will deepen intercultural knowledge and understanding in all departments, increase experiential learning opportunities at Notre Dame and abroad, and expand course offerings and extracurricular options to include more global topics and perspectives.
  • Increased opportunities for students to participate in diverse and authentic leadership experiences.
