Notre Dame welcomes retirees back to the classroom

Management professor Chris Stevens’ work as co-founder of Notre Dame’s new Inspired Leadership Initiative was featured in The Observer.

It really is filling an unmet need. The retirement model is totally outdated. People who are 55 to 60 have maybe another 20, 25 years of life left to them.”
