Support at Notre Dame

We are part of the OCW Consortium, “a worldwide community of hundreds of universities and associated organizations committed to advancing OpenCourseWare.” Notre Dame’s participation is consistent with its mission “to provide a forum where through free inquiry and open discussion the various lines of Catholic thought may intersect with all the forms of knowledge found in the arts, sciences, professions, and every other area of human scholarship and creativity.”
