Notre Dame in Chile: Exchanging ideas and creating pathways for collaboration

Author: Tammi Freehling

Group from Notre Dame Colleges of Science and Engineering in Chile with Catolica colleagues.

In April 2018, a delegation from Notre Dame visited with colleagues from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Católica) in Santiago, Chile. The trip was led by Mary Galvin, William K. Warren Family Foundation Dean of the College of Science; and Peter Kilpatrick, Matthew H. McCloskey Dean of the College of Engineering, and included faculty and advisory council members. Galvin and Kilpatrick sought to engage in dialogue with peers, exchange ideas, and create pathways for collaboration between scientists and researchers at both institutions.
