Statement by Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president, University of Notre Dame

University of Notre Dame

“Jeff Immelt has been for me a model leader: ethically principled, guided by a long-term vision for his company rather than short-term results; at the same time a global citizen and a dedicated patriot, and a CEO who invested heavily in the development of his organization’s most valuable resource — its people. Immelt is a Notre Dame honorary degree recipient and Commencement speaker, a major employer of our graduates and a friend. I congratulate him on his exemplary leadership at GE, in our nation and in our world.”
