A Message from the Director
As many of you know, I will be stepping down as director of the Institute effective July 1, 2012. I look forward to working with the administration in this transitional period and beyond, and am pleased to say that I will not be leaving Notre Dame, but will continue to teach and to assist the provost while fitting in, at some point, a long-awaited sabbatical. I am very grateful for the support the University has given me from the founding of the Institute in 1999 through the present. As we begin a new academic year, my last as director of the Institute, I would like to take a moment to reflect on some of Institute’s key accomplishments and future promise.
