SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame is moving ahead with plans to create about 80 new faculty positions targeted in key research areas.
School officials say the new hires on the South Bend campus will be paid for with about $10 million in funds that have been reallocated from lower-priority projects.
The hirings are planned over a number of years and will be part of the school’s Advancing Our Vision program that focuses on research.
