The University of Notre Dame seeks to be a preeminent research university with a distinctive Catholic character and an unsurpassed commitment to undergraduate and post-baccalaureate education, aims that provide the foundation for its academic mission.
As provost, John T. McGreevy is Notre Dame’s chief academic officer and is responsible for the stewardship of this mission, serving as the principal representative of the academy to both internal and external constituencies and leading strategic academic initiatives on behalf of the University. Working with the associate provosts, the vice president for research, the associate vice president for undergraduate enrollment, the deans, the University librarian, and other academic leaders, he seeks to cultivate a learning community that challenges and engages students, inspires leading research and scholarship, and appreciates all intellectual inquiry as a pursuit of truth.
Since its earliest days, the University has been guided by a bold vision for scholarship and discovery.
Dedication to the undergraduate student is and always will be at the core of Notre Dame’s academic mission.
Notre Dame's Catholic identity is one of its greatest assets, thanks in no small part to the dialogue it inspires.
The University thrives as a scholarly community precisely because it embraces the individual perspectives of faculty and students.

“I came to Notre Dame to advance my scholarship and to create an infrastructure to support other scholars in the emerging field of Afro-Latin American Studies. Since arriving, I’ve been given the opportunity to expand the scope of my work to address directly systemic racism – one of the fundamental problems animating so much of African-American and Afro-Latin American writing.”
