Higgins Labor Program

The Higgins Labor Program (HLP) is an interdisciplinary unit of the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) sponsoring research, education, and community engagement on issues involving work, labor organization, and social justice.

Informed by the Catholic Social Tradition’s commitment to the dignity of work and the rights of workers, and inspired by the University of Notre Dame’s mission to foster amongst its students “a sense of human solidarity and concern for the common good,” the Higgins Labor Program emphasizes initiatives “that will bear fruit as learning becomes service to justice."

The work of the Higgins Labor Program is where understanding becomes responsibility on "the labor question" confronting all human societies: Who does the work, what are the rules, and who gets the fruits?
