Among the defining traits of the Notre Dame community is its commitment to serving those in need —
a commitment that includes traditional volunteer efforts, as well as innovative service-learning programs and research geared toward improving lives in all corners of the world.
- About 80% of our students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years here.
- At least 10% of our students devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.
- Since 1961, more than 775 Notre Dame graduates have entered the Peace Corps – more than from any other Catholic college or university.
- A new community-based research course in medical anthropology permits Notre Dame undergraduates to partner with local organizations to improve health care services.
- Through its Traveling Trunks Program, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies helps K-12 students get “hands-on” in their study of Latin America and Africa.
