Please join us on Thursday, January 18, 2024 at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Join us for the ninth annual campus-wide observance of Walk the Walk Week (WTWW), a week-long series of University, department, and student-sponsored events designed to help us consider how we‚ÄĒboth individually and collectively‚ÄĒcan take an active role in making Notre Dame more welcoming and inclusive.

Notre Dame’s commitment to diversity and inclusion arises from our aspirations about the community we want to be and goes to the heart of the University’s mission. In keeping with Catholic social teaching, we strive to:

  • Respect the dignity of every person
  • Build a Notre Dame community in which all can flourish
  • Live in solidarity with all, particularly the most vulnerable

WTWW is an important opportunity, among many throughout the year, to recommit ourselves to these principles and consider our next step in building a more just, equitable, and inclusive campus and society.
