The agreement supports a new, deep partnership between the two universities. The partnership sets the stage for collaboration in a range of areas to deliver an enriched experience for students and staff at both institutions. The agreement will create opportunities for staff mobility and exchanges, joint research centres, joint staff appointments and for students to participate in study abroad programs between the universities.
The agreement also creates the opportunity for the universities to pursue joint academic programs. Such programs could eventually see students study at both universities as part of their degree, benefiting from the best that each university has to offer and experiencing student life in each country.
Notre Dame Vice-Chancellor Francis Campbell said: “It is great to see Notre Dame work with St Mary’s, an institution which is a natural partner for us. Staff and students alike at both institutions will benefit from this new partnership.”
St Mary’s Vice-Chancellor Anthony McClaran said: “I am delighted that we have been able to sign this MOU with Notre Dame. The two universities share a distinct Catholic identity and I am confident that this new partnership will deliver a range of exciting teaching and research developments for students and staff at both Universities.”
