Barrett Family Lecture

The Barrett Family Lecture Series was established through the generous support of R. Stephen and Ruth Barrett. The initiative brings prominent leaders in the areas of business, politics, and the arts to the University of Notre Dame’s Global Gateway facilities in Dublin and London to share their views on issues of major importance to the understanding of contemporary Europe with Notre Dame students and the wider community.
