Institute for Advanced Study
The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) brings together leading thinkers from around the world to live and work in an intellectual community. These cross-disciplinary scholars, scientists, and artists pursue innovative and collaborative research projects, augmenting the life of the mind on campus. Building upon the Catholic intellectual tradition and inspired by the classical values of truth, goodness, and beauty, the NDIAS challenges its fellows to address fundamental and enduring questions about value, meaning, and purpose: what should we care about? And how should we choose to live?
