We Come to You

The Recruitment team is pleased to spend significant portions of the year visiting potential Notre Dame graduate students at various campuses, postgraduate fairs, and networking events around the globe to discuss Notre Dame’s graduate programs, professional development, campus experience, and much more.

Nyrée McDonald, PhD, Associate Dean of Recruitment and Admissions travels most extensively, followed by Dee Gipson, PhD, Program Director for Recruitment Strategies. In addition, graduate student recruiters occasionally represent Notre Dame at various campuses and events, where they enjoy sharing first-hand accounts of Notre Dame’s campus experience with potential recruits from all backgrounds and academic disciplines.

Potential Notre Dame graduate students: at Notre Dame, Your Research Matters. We are looking forward to meeting you and sharing how our approach to graduate studies will empower you to produce research that matters, and to grow as a scholar, professional, and individual along the way.
