My name is John Lubker and I serve as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. I am also the Graduate School's designated ombudsperson and have been since 2011. Ombudspersons are members of the Notre Dame faculty or staff appointed by the President to provide information and assistance regarding sexual or discriminatory harassment to the entire University community.

In my role as ombudsperson for the Graduate School, I am a resource for graduate students to confidentially discuss progress issues, mentorship concerns, or seek guidance from a neutral party about their studies. 

If you need to get in touch with me, please contact me at or call 574-631-5778.
