The mission of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies is to enrich the intellectual culture of Notre Dame by creating an integrated, interdisciplinary home for students and faculty to explore the evolving ideas, cultures, beliefs, and institutions that shape Europe today.

To pursue its mission, the Institute works to promote European studies at Notre Dame, transform its undergraduates, professionalize its graduate students, foster its interdisciplinary faculty research, and build its international network.

Now in Nanovic Hall on Notre Dame Avenue, the Nanovic Institute has entered a second decade of exciting growth as part of Notre Dame’s new Keough School of Global Affairs.
