Kroc Institute events canceled from March 12-April 13

Kroc News Unassigned

On March 11, the University of Notre Dame announced the decision to suspend all in-person classes and to replace these classes with virtual instruction and other alternative learning options. These measures will begin Monday, March 23, and will continue through at least April 13.

In addition, the University has highly recommended avoiding hosting University-sponsored events that convene a high number of individuals through April 13.

In response to these measures, the Kroc Institute has made the difficult decision to cancel all public-facing Kroc Institute events scheduled from now through April 13. These events include the Distinguished Alumni Award lecture originally scheduled for March 17 and the Hesburgh Lecture on Ethics and Public Policy featuring Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw originally scheduled for April 6. We hope to reschedule these events for a future date, and will post event updates on our website at
