About PSA

Our Purpose

The Progressive Student Alliance is a coalition of students, faculty and staff whose primary commitment is to advance the mission of Notre Dame’s call to foster a community in which every member is welcomed, respected, and loved without reservation.  PSA opposes all forms of oppression and takes an active approach to pursue changes to communal norms that inhibit or prevent a culture of respect for the fundamental dignity of the human person.  PSA raises awareness of social issues, cooperates with existing groups, empowers students, and encourages and organizes action.
