ThinkND, the University of Notre Dame’s open, online learning community, will launch a new virtual initiative this fall titled “Where We’re Going.” At a time when the lives of many have been dramatically disrupted and work, education and society’s functions are in a state of constant transition, this series will explore this point in history and how the work happening on Notre Dame’s campus and beyond relates to and impacts the United States and the world at large.
The weekly enrichment series will select a relevant theme each month, and participants will be invited to join three or four events each month to hear from faculty and industry practitioners and participate in discussions to enhance their understanding of the theme.
The first installment will focus on global citizenship and feature campus, national and international perspectives from faculty, students and practitioners in the global community. As global forces — such as the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice, employment instability and polarized politics — increasingly remind us of our interconnectedness, regardless of our physical location, the global citizen strives to live a purposeful life while making the world a more fair, equitable and sustainable place.
Future themes will include sports, privacy, health care, education, climate and sustainability, a retrospective on the 2020 election, family and individual wellness.
