Team Irish 1

The Klau Institute for Civil and Human Rights, part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, was honored with a Presidential Team Irish Award during the Notre Dame versus Clemson football game on Nov. 5.

In 2020 the Klau Institute started the “Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary” lecture series designed to provide intellectual and moral building blocks to begin the transformative work of anti-racism in students, on campus and in our broader communities. 

The enthusiastic response of the Notre Dame community has been remarkable. In three semesters, more than 3,000 members of the Notre Dame community — students, staff, faculty and alumni — have registered for the series. The effort has also inspired hundreds of Notre Dame students to engage in associated courses and led to staff discussions and reflection groups. 

Congratulations to the organizers of the “Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary” lecture series from the Klau Institute for exemplifying the University’s core values and receiving the Presidential Team Irish Award.
