The Nanovic Institute for European Studies was honored with a Presidential Team Irish Award on Saturday, Sept. 10 during the first home football game of the 2022 season.
Over the course of the spring semester, the Nanovic Institute, part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, responded quickly to create meaningful events and programming in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The Nanovic Institute created regular content inspired and informed by its partners in Ukraine and set up a dedicated and regularly updated web page with information and resources for the campus community. The institute also hosted and co-sponsored a total of 16 events that included panels, featured lectures, a film screening and other offerings focused on Ukraine and Russia’s invasion.
Notre Dame’s long-standing partnership with the Ukrainian Catholic University aided this group in shedding light on the people affected, and their efforts continue with a summer school for Ukrainian students (offered in Croatia) as well as expansion of the visiting scholar program to include more Ukrainian scholars.
