University of Notre Dame

The Story of Notre Dame
Brother Aidan's Extracts

EVANS, (On Growth of Notre Dame)

"the astonishing feature about this growth is that the University has no endowment. The explanation lies in the faculty, which is composed of priests, Brothers and laymen. The laymen, numbering 41 are all salaried, but the priests and Brothers, who number 44, give their time, labor, and energy without compensation. A majority of the faculty serve without pay and the University is supported by the tuition of the students. Its sole endowment has been one of flesh and blood." Arthur Evans, in 1911; Chicago "Record-Herald", 1911
