SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Some of the most important writings of late University of Notre Dame President Rev. Theodore Hesburgh are now available online.

The university has announced the Hesburgh Portal is available at hesburghportal.nd.edu .

The material includes Hesburgh's work on the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. The Holy Cross priest was a charter member of the commission in 1957 and chaired the panel from 1969 to 1972.

Notre Dame President Rev. John Jenkins says the portal "allows scholars, historians and others from across the globe to access Father Hesburgh's writings and works." He says Hesburgh's "life's work will continue to have an impact on higher education and on all who work for peace and justice."

Hesburgh, who died in February 2015 at age 97, was Notre Dame's president from 1952 to 1987.
