The Charles Koch Foundation Supports the Expansion of Notre Dame’s Constitutional Studies Program

The University of Notre Dame recently announced plans to strengthen its Constitutional Studies Program by expanding its faculty, course offerings, student aid, and program of activities. In support of this expansion, the Charles Koch Foundation has given a $1.5 million gift to the university, joining donations from other generous Notre Dame benefactors.

Since Notre Dame launched its undergraduate minor in Constitutional Studies in 2012, the program has grown from a graduating class of just three students, to forty-two graduates in 2019.

The Program also supports the Department of Political Science’s efforts to support doctoral students interested in teaching and research on the American Constitution, the philosophy of law, international law, and comparative constitutionalism.
