Notre Dame Receives Grants to Support Art, Business Programs

Notre Dame College has received two new grants totaling nearly $40,000, one to support photo- journaling and theatre projects and one to grow its entrepreneurship program.

With nearly $25,000 from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC), the “NDC Arts: Alive and Thriving” grant project will help fund photography activities and a theatrical event the College will offer free to the public.

Notre Dame is launching a three year plan to increase its entrepreneurship offerings with a $15,000 grant from a foundation supporting free enterprise, The Burton D. Morgan Foundation.

With The Burton D. Morgan Foundation grant, the Business Division plans to add an entrepreneurship major in 2016. The grant also will help develop a course in social entrepreneurship along with one in creativity, innovation and idea generation and further establish the College’s entrepreneurship club.

The CAC grant supports a photo contest in which members of the campus and South Euclid and Lyndhurst, Ohio, communities recorded “a day in the life” of their cities. The photos will be used as part of an exhibit on campus in the fall as well as part of the City of South Euclid storefront initiative, in which works of art are displayed in the windows of businesses along Mayfield Road.

The theatrical production will be based on the history of South Euclid and Lyndhurst and the College. It is scheduled for fall.
