Each year at Notre Dame is filled with highlights, achievements and accomplishments. Some of the significant moments from the 2010 calendar year:
- In his five-plus years as Notre Dame’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., has emphasized the University’s research efforts, while maintaining its historic strength as an undergraduate university and enduring commitment to its Catholic character – to be the Catholic research university for our time. Significant evidence of Notre Dame’s progress in this regard was the nearly $119 million in external research awards for fiscal year 2010, an increase of some $40 million from the previous year and $80 million from a decade ago. In addition, the University provided a second round of $40 million of internal funding for a wide array of projects.
