Cardinal O’Hara established the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame in 1921, firmly committed to the idea that “the primary function of commerce is service to mankind”. As the world economy continues to grow and change, how do you see business acting as a positive force in the world?
The University of Notre Dame was founded in 1842, by Father Edward Sorin, C.S.C, with a mission to become “one of the most powerful means for doing good in this country”. In 1879, Father Sorin’s vision for Notre Dame appeared to be at a sudden, abrupt end. A massive fire destroyed the building that housed virtually the entire University. Instead of giving up, Father Sorin interpreted the fire as a sign that he had dreamed too small, and decided to rebuild, bigger and better than ever. That Main Building still stands today, topped by the gleaming Golden Dome, not only as an iconic campus building, but as an ongoing symbol of perseverance and vision.
Tell us the story of a time in your own life or career when you had to overcome an obstacle, start over, or rebuild.

Edward Sorin of the Congregation of Holy Cross took possession of 524 acres of snow-covered land from the Bishop of Vincennes. Father Sorin named the institution in his native language as “L’Université de Notre Dame du Lac” (The University of Our Lady of the Lake). A fire destroyed the main building in 1879. Father Sorin pioneered the effort to reconstruct the new building by employing 300 workers and successfully rebuilt the new building. The Mendoza College of Business was founded in 1921 by Holy Cross priest, John Francis O’hara who later became the President of the University.
