Notre Dame is proud to present a number of different weekly series exploring some of the topics and ideas of interest to our University and professors, faculty, and staff during home game weekends.
Building Bridges of Faith Photo Exhibition
September 6 - December 9, 2017
The University of Notre Dame and the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest are pleased to present a photographic depiction of Papal visits to the Holy Land. Forty-four photographs of four visits by Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis are included in the exhibition at the Hesburgh Library on the Notre Dame campus.
This exhibition and the partnership between the University of Notre Dame and the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest represents a response to the Pope’s calling to “reflect deeply on the significance of the Jewish roots of our own faith” and to seek “mutual understanding of our spiritual heritage” (from the Address of Pope Francis on May 26, 2014, in Jerusalem).
Continue the Notre Dame tradition of lifelong learning. A Football Fridays series featuring faculty sharing their insight and experiences about Notre Dame and its place in the world. All lectures are at 2:00 p.m. in the Eck visitors center Auditorium.
Dooley Society Lecture Series
The Dr. Tom Dooley Society, an enthusiastic and fast-growing group of Notre Dame's medical alumni, hosts lectures on most Game Days to encourage discussion of health-related topics and to bolster its ongoing work of mentoring Notre Dame students interested in the medical field.
Emil T. Hofman Lecture
Many Domers celebrate their admiration for Emil T. Hofman, legendary chemistry professor, mentor to many, and dean emeritus of the First Year of Studies by visiting with him in person on campus and/or attending the annual Emil T. Hofman Lecture held in his honor on a Game Day.

Every football season, the Saturday Scholar Series offers free-of-charge lectures or panel discussions.
