The University of Notre Dame’s 2019 Commencement Weekend held special significance for the Keough School of Global Affairs. Nearly two years after opening its doors in 2017, Notre Dame’s first new school in nearly a century celebrated its first graduating class.

In a recognition ceremony on May 18, more than 200 family, friends, faculty, and students gathered in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center’s Decio Theatre to honor the Master of Global Affairs Class of 2019. The class represents 22 different countries ranging from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

The Keough School also recognized the first graduate of its new undergraduate supplementary major in global affairs. Rose Pupel earned a major in economics and global affairs, studied abroad in Ireland, and earned a minor in Irish studies through the Keough School’s Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies.
