Notre Dame International Security Center


The Notre Dame International Security Center was established in 2008 to provide a forum where leading scholars in national security studies from Notre Dame and elsewhere could come together to explore some of the most pressing issues in national security policy.

The center is directed by Professor Michael Desch. NDISC gratefully acknowledges the support of the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame, the Michael T. Long ('64) Family Endowment for Excellence, the James P. Reilly, Jr. Notre Dame National Security Lecture Series Fund, the Charles Koch Foundation, and the Jack Kelly and Gail Weiss International Security Speaker's Fund.
