HIGHER EDUCATION SUPPORTS UN GOALS

At a recent meeting of Religious NGOs at the UN, a Sister experienced in higher education recommended two entities as ones that religious congregation-sponsored institutions might consider joining. She said that small colleges and universities especially benefit from being recognized as belonging to these groups which support UN goals. There are no requirements for affiliation other than affirming the principles under which the groups are organized, which are resonant with our Notre Dame mission. One group is UN Academic Impact and the other is UFWH (Universities Fighting World Hunger), and both have members from around the world.
