The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study supports research that is directed toward, or extends inquiry to include, ultimate questions and questions of value, bringing together leading thinkers from around the world to live and work at the University as fellows in a residential intellectual community. These cross-disciplinary scholars, scientists, and artists pursue innovative research projects as they engage and contribute to the research of Notre Dame colleagues and students from multiple disciplines, augmenting the life of the mind on campus. As an Institute within Notre Dame Research, the NDIAS strives to be the first place that comes to mind when scholars and scientists embark on major inter- or multidisciplinary projects that seek to relate specialized academic research to deeper inquiry about meaning and morality.
