Notre Dame Partners with UK College
The University of Notre Dame has signed a memorandum of understanding with St. Edmund’s College of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The agreement aims to encourage and support collaboration between faculty, students and administrators, as well as research and outreach.
The MOU was made official during a virtual ceremony and was signed by Notre Dame President Reverend John Jenkins and Catherine Arnold, master of St. Edmund’s College.
“Catholic institutions of higher learning share a stewardship of the Catholic intellectual tradition and service to justice and the common good through the pursuit of knowledge,” said Father Jenkins. “This MOU joins two institutions with a deep affinity, and I hope it inspires fruitful scholarly engagements for years to come.”
Notre Dame says the agreement is part of its global engagement strategy to foster partnerships that support international research and education.
“The Catholic founders of St. Edmund’s College were committed to ensuring no one was excluded from the best higher education on the basis of faith or identity,” said Arnold. “Today, over 125 years later, St. Edmund’s fosters the talent of students and scholars from over 75 countries supporting the formation of ethical leaders and thinkers who will go on to shape the lives of people across the globe.”
Notre Dame says it has more than 120 agreements with partners on six continents.
