Amplify the societal impact of research

Creating pathways between research and the common good

Our Mission

The Center for Broader Impacts (CBI) collaborates with faculty and researchers at the University of Notre Dame to expand the public reach and societal contributions of their research. Through the development of novel and scalable models for amplifying the impact of the University’s research endeavors, CBI advances the University of Notre Dame’s commitment to scholarly excellence and its role as a catalyst for positive change in the world. 

Want to share a broader impact opportunity with us?

CBI works closely with campus partners to identify successful broader impacts efforts and opportunities for partnership with Notre Dame grant applicants – but we know there is a lot of excellent work happening across campus that we have not yet heard about. If you'd like to share a broader impacts opportunity with us, please complete this brief form and a member of our team will follow up.
