The University of Notre Dame has announced a partnership with Global Citizen. For all students admitted to both Notre Dame and Global Citizen Year, the Office of Admissions says it will defer admission offers for one year to allow students to immerse themselves in the program.
Global Citizen Year is an eight-month global immersion and leadership development program that takes place between a student’s graduation from high school and entering a university.
Global Citizen Year Fellows apprentice in the education, health or environmental fields while staying with a host family in one of four countries — Brazil, Ecuador, India or Senegal.
“I’m delighted that we are working with Global Citizen Year to advance our goal of attracting and cultivating students with a strong sense of human solidarity and concern for the greater good,” said Don Bishop, associate vice president of undergraduate enrollment at Notre Dame in a news release. “This program is a natural match with our unique history and mission among the nation’s top universities. I have no doubt that these global change-makers will enrich our campus community in numerous ways, and go on to be some of our most influential alumni.”
