Congratulations to our Graduates

Each spring, the Medieval Institute holds a special graduation ceremony for its students, featuring a ritual of academic investiture based on medieval practice and conducted in Latin. This year, the ceremony will take place on Friday, May 19, at 1:30 PM in the chapel of Dillon Hall. Following the ceremony, the graduates, together with their friends, family, and colleagues, will enjoy a reception in the Hospitality Room of the South Dining Hall. The institute congratulates all of these fine scholars on their hard work and achievements and wishes them every success!

Alumni Spotlight

Each fall and spring we present a new Alumni Spotlight featuring the career paths of Institute alumni. Our Spring Spotlight features Hilary Ott (B.A. '13). We asked her to share with us her journey from Institute graduate to an expert in the business and art worlds, and now back to Notre Dame to work as an Academic Advancement Director for Arts & Architecture.

Construction Alert

Construction is planned for the institute in the areas of the Paleography, Gabriel, and Ambrosiana rooms from June 12 to roughly July 31 this summer. We do not plan to close the office or the reading rooms during the construction, but some of these named areas might be inaccessible for a few days at a time throughout the period. Please be advised that noise level will be high at times. We encourage you to plan your visits accordingly.
