We encourage Arts and Letters faculty and staff to contact the Academic Conferences team on the Notre Dame campus for larger events.

Please note, due to a busy academic program, we cannot guarantee that there will be space available at your preferred date/time. Any requests for hires for public events will be considered but must be approved by the faculty advisory committee as fitting with Notre Dame’s objectives.
