Recommend a Partnership or Opportunity

The Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame is committed to working closely and effectively with our many community partners. Community leaders provide unique insight, perspective, and resources that are essential to create positive local impact. We applaud the work that you do to support the marginalized and vulnerable in our community and are eager to connect with you in sustainable ways. We also recognize that your organization’s capacity for and interest in working with us is not limitless and is subject to change.

Recommend a Partnership

With that in mind, please help us better understand your interest in and expected capacity to connect with Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students by using this form to recommend potential partnerships. This simple survey offers flexible space to briefly describe one or more possible projects that your organization may be interested in pursuing with us. Please note that anything you share will be the start of a conversation and will not be considered an official commitment from your organization or the Center for Social Concerns. We recognize that circumstances and resources can change rapidly. Feel free to use this form regularly to update us on your organization’s activities and interests.

Please note that portions of your response may be publicly listed on a site hosted by the Center for Social Concerns and communicated with faculty, staff, and students interested in community engagement.
