Center for Social Concerns


 

The Center for Social Concerns joins the Notre Dame community in mourning the passing of Fr. Ted Hesburgh, C.S.C. We owe Fr. Hesburgh our perpetual gratitude for inspiring the Center’s work and providing it with its first location in the former WNDU television building next to the library named after him. From his office on the thirteenth floor of the library he often looked out on the Center and eventually watched the building of its new home, Geddes Hall. “It’s a building Fr. Ted delighted to look down upon from his office in the library, knowing that what happened there served the University and the Church that he loved,” said executive director Fr. Paul Kollman, C.S.C.
