The University was honored at the The Center for History’s annual dinner, held Sept. 26 at the Historic Oliver Gardens of Copshaholm in South Bend.
Present at the occasion were Notre Dame’s three living presidents, Presidents Emeritus Rev. Edward A. “Monk” Malloy, C.S.C., at left, and Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., and, at right, President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.
The event, held on the occasion of the University’s 170th year, celebrated and honored Notre Dame’s vision, leadership and community engagement, reflecting the University’s faith-based core values since its establishment in 1842.
“Father Sorin’s vision was to build a great university whose graduates would go forth and do good,” said a statement issued by The Center for History. “In the 170 years since, priests from the Congregation of Holy Cross have expanded upon his original bold vision. Their successive leadership has continued advancing the University to its place among the outstanding institutions of higher learning in the country and the world.”
