The University of Notre Dame Board of Trustees elected Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., on Friday (Oct. 11) to a fourth five-year term as president of the University, effective at the conclusion of his third term June 30, chairman John J. Brennan announced on behalf of the Board at its fall meeting on campus.

“Like the 16 Holy Cross priests before him, Father Jenkins has led the University of Notre Dame with ultimate distinction,” Brennan said. “His insight, wisdom and steady hand have allowed Notre Dame to expand its research portfolio, grow globally and continue to provide an undergraduate education of the first rank, all in concert with our Catholic mission.”

“I am honored by the confidence the Trustees have shown to me, and I am appreciative of the many ways in which they, my colleagues in administration, the faculty, our staff, our students, my Holy Cross brothers and all who make up the Notre Dame family work in tandem to make this University a force for good,” Father Jenkins said. “It has been a singular honor to serve as president for the past 15 years. I look forward to our accomplishing still more in the future.”
