The University of Notre Dame is cognizant that international engagement is essential in order to address pressing global challenges and to share in our common drive for human understanding, knowledge, and the common good. The University prides itself on working ethically and collaboratively with international scholars and organizations and with encouraging international research by faculty and students. We are committed to continuing to encourage and support international research and collaborations, while preserving the academic freedom central to our mission. This is eloquently expressed by Notre Dame Research’s Commitment to International Collaboration and Scholarship:
"Notre Dame Research is committed to supporting researchers in their pursuit of globally significant, solutions-oriented research discoveries, contributions, and creative endeavors. International collaboration and scholarship across borders are essential to the vital interchange of ideas that feeds research and advances human understanding. To that end, we welcome scholars and students from around the world into the Notre Dame Research community and we value the insight and diversity of thought that each brings to his/her work and to our community at large."
The University is simultaneously dedicated to international collaboration and scholarship with integrity and transparency and in adherence with all of the regulatory requirements that safeguard both the research and the researchers.
