On the Sidelines with Brad Gregory: From Stanford to Notre Dame

Friday, October 12th at 2:00 pm in the Eck Visitors Center Auditorium. 

You’re invited along with your friends and colleagues to join the Notre Dame Alumni Association for the Football Fridays Academic Series this Friday at 2:00 pm.  Professor Brad Gregory’s talk will take you on his journey from Stanford to Notre Dame. Please forward this email to anyone you know who may be interested in attending.

Professor Gregory, a practicing Catholic and award-winning scholar of the Reformation era, left a tenured position at Stanford in 2003 for the opportunity to teach and do research at Notre Dame. In his view, Notre Dame offers greater academic freedom than secular universities because of its openness to religion on its own terms, and has a crucial intellectual role to play in American higher education and American society because of its Catholic identity.

On the Sidelines: Football Fridays Academic Series features Notre Dame faculty sharing their insight and experiences about Notre Dame and its place in the world.  You may learn more about the Football Fridays Academic Series on the Alumni Association website.   Also on October 19th, the On the Sidelines speaker will be Professor Patrick Griffin from the College of Arts and Letters talking about why research is so important to Notre Dame.  All are welcome.

If you have any questions, please let me know.


Lisa A. Heming, Director, Academic Programs
