Keeping Community Connected

Shelter-in-place. Stay-at-home. Social Distancing. Self-isolate.

Notre Dame Global Classroom - Opening the door to innovative distance education

Notre Dame encourages students to broaden their experiences by participating in overseas study experiences.  What happens, though, if a student needs to complete a particular course to stay on track for his/her degree and that course is only offered on-campus?
