Hesburgh Forums

September 1, 2017


Since 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture Series has brought a taste of Notre Dame’s academic excellence to alumni and their local communities.  The lectures, hosted by Notre Dame clubs, have perpetuated the example of President Emeritus Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., as a lifelong learner.

The Notre Dame Club of Chicago offers 2-3 Hesburgh Forums a year. If interested in joining the Hesburgh Forums committee, please contact Lou Hall at


Upcoming Hesburgh Forums

Our next Hesburgh Forum will take place on Monday, October 30th. We welcome Notre Dame alum, Jennifer F. Scanlon, President and CEO of USG. The event will take place at Skender Construction’s new headquarters at 1330 West Fulton Market, Suite 200.


Jennifer F. Scanlon graduated from Notre Dame in 1988 with dual degrees in government and computer applications, then earned an MBA in finance and marketing four years later from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. She started at USG in 2003 and took over as CEO in November 2016.
