Global Gateways

The University of Notre Dame enjoys extraordinary worldwide presence, a good portion of which is mediated through its unique network of Global Gateways.  

The current five Global Gateways—located in Beijing, Dublin, Jerusalem, London, and Rome—provide academic and intellectual hubs where scholars, students, and leaders from universities, government, business, and community gather to discuss, discover, and debate issues of topical and enduring relevance.

Each Global Gateway has dedicated staff who collaborate with their counterparts at Notre Dame’s campus to support Notre Dame programs and outreach. Notre Dame International coordinates the management of the Global Gateways and supports faculty in developing and sustaining programs at them.

For general questions on Global Gateways and Notre Dame International logistical support, please contact Thomas Guinan.

For support in developing academic programs at one of the Notre Dame Global Gateways, please contact Warren von Eschenbach.
