On October 10, 2015, prior to the Fighting Irish vs. U.S. Naval Academy football game, ILS Co-Director Timothy Matovina moderated the Saturday Scholar Series lecture titled “Father Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., Among the Notre Dame Presidents.” The lecture video can now be seen here in its entirety.

Notre Dame’s 17 presidents, from Father Edward Sorin to Father John I. Jenkins, have advanced what was initially a regional preparatory school into an internationally recognized Catholic university. This session will examine the legacy of Father Ted Hesburgh among Notre Dame’s presidents.
