SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - The University of Notre Dame has announced a new strategic plan whose goals include seeking to expand partnerships with South Bend and the state of Indiana to create jobs.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1jMVKx9 ) the university wants to engage in external collaborations that extend and deepen Notre Dame’s impact. The plan announced Monday builds on five goals the Rev. John Jenkins, the university’s president, outlined when he was inaugurated in 2005. Notre Dame updates its strategic plan every 10 years.

Other goals include expanding digitization efforts at the Hesburgh Libraries, making the university a foremost place for the study of religion, and developing commercialization sabbaticals for engineering professors.
