dc.description.abstract This research paper describes the steps its author took to locate appropriate and relevant sources of information for its completion. Of greater significance, this paper chronicles the establishment of the University of Notre Dame (located just north of South Bend, Indiana, in Notre Dame, Indiana) by its founder and first president, Reverend (Rev.) Edward Sorin, Congregation of Holy Cross (C.S.C.), in 1842 and the initial and unfolding challenges and successes the institution experienced. The scope of this research paper also traces the subsequent expansion (during periods of war and political, social, and ecclesiastical growing pains and upheaval) of the University of Notre Dame and the progression of its position within the landscape of higher education in America as a Catholic university, an athletic program, and a peer and rival of secular institutions. It also includes a review of the more seminal tenures and accomplishments of several former University of Notre Dame presidents—namely, Rev. Andrew Morrissey, C.S.C., Rev. James A. Burns, C.S.C., and Father John J. Cavanaugh, C.S.C.—and culminates with an examination of the tenure of Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., through 1976. en_US
