Economic Impact

Notre Dame is a major contributor to the economic vitality of the city of South Bend, St. Joseph County and the state of Indiana. As a national — and, increasingly global — institution, Notre Dame also has a growing influence on the world beyond South Bend.

The Office of Public Affairs is dedicated to the University’s contribution to the ongoing development of the local economy and also how a strong partnership with the community benefits Notre Dame as well.

Growth in jobs, spending and other economic indicators show a vibrant university and a willing, supportive surrounding community.
