SOUTH BEND -

The University of Notre Dame's first new school in almost a century is now open. The inaugural Donald R. Keough School of Global Affairs class includes 38 students from 21 countries in its master of global affairs program. Earlier this week, Notre Dame announced former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough has joined the Keough School as an executive fellow of its Global Policy Initiative.

The school, named for Donald and Marilyn Keough, is housed in the new Jenkins Hall, which bears the name of current Notre Dame President John Jenkins. In 2013, the Keoughs donated $30 million to support construction of the building and announced it would be named for Jenkins. Notre Dame says the Keoughs "among the most generous benefactors" in its history.

Students currently enrolled have professional backgrounds in international development, education, peacebuilding, environmental conservation, human rights, humanitarian assistance and journalism. Concentration areas in the school include international development, international peace studies and global affairs. It includes nine international units: the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, the Liu Institute for Asia & and Asian Studies, the McKenna Center for Human Development and Global Business, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development.
