Many voices. One conversation.

“Dialogue, one can argue, is the central activity of any university community. We can disagree passionately, but we should not demean our opponents. We should state our convictions, but we should listen to all, and most attentively to those who do not share our views.”

— Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., University President, November 14, 2016

In 2014, the University began producing its institutional messages in-house. That is, without the help of an outside firm to develop the copy, production, shooting and editing. These past five years the spots have attempted to give viewers a different look at Notre Dame, or to emphasize an important aspect of the University.

This year’s message continues that tradition. Produced on campus by the University’s Multimedia unit and featuring Notre Dame students, this year’s spot depicts Notre Dame as a place where ideas can be exchanged and examined openly, civilly. Indeed, this is not a characteristic that is or should be confined to Notre Dame, and our hope is that the spot encourages viewers to live out the concept in their own lives. 

As Fr. Jenkins said in the wake of the 2016 election, “Dialogue, one can argue, is the central activity of any university community.” Notre Dame has sought to foster that dialogue in a number of ways, and will continue to strive to be a place where many voices can contribute to one conversation.
