Loyal Daughters and Sons: Celebrating 50 Years of Female Progress

On behalf of the Hesburgh Women of Impact program, please join the Student Government Department of Gender Relations – Title IX and Women’s Initiatives in a panel-led discussion on female progress and co-education at Notre Dame, featuring UR’s own Indi Jackson!.

Panelists include Mary Bliley (first female undergraduate – ’72),  Katie Conboy (President of St. Mary’s), Carolyn Woo (first female dean of Mendoza College of Business), Indi Jackson (former ND student-athlete and current Regional Director of Development), and Kathleen Sprows Cummings (professor of American Studies).

We are excited to host this conversation as our community continues celebrating the 50th academic year of co-education at Notre Dame. All are welcome, and the first 50 attendees will receive free t-shirts designed to resemble the previously distributed 1972 hats. We look forward to seeing you in Jordan Auditorium (Mendoza College of Business) on Monday, March 27th, from 6:00-7:15 pm.

Changes for Mary Flynt & the LOD Team

In full support of our trusted colleague Mary Flynt, I inform you of her decision:

“After careful thought and consideration, I’ve decided to step back from work to focus on our family during this current season of life. I’ve been inspired, encouraged, supported, and loved by the UR team since even before I joined it, so this departure is bittersweet in many ways. My last day isn’t for a few months yet so I’m confident there will be many more memories made, people to onboard, and opportunities to connect before I depart.”

Mary will continue her model service to our mission until July 1.
Please join me in celebrating her in the coming months.
True to above-and-beyond form, Mary’s thoughtful notice propels effective continuation of her impact.

Also, I am pleased to share that Sara Liebscher, Brian Diss, and I have been collaborating to expand the capacity and influence of the Learning and Organizational Development (LOD) team. Stay tuned for additional news and postings in the coming weeks.

For Notre Dame,

Bryan Reaume

Welcome Beth Lindauer to Central Region!

The Central Region is excited to announce that Beth Lindauer will join the team as a Regional Director beginning today, Monday, March 20th. Beth grew up in Colorado but lived in Louisville, Kentucky, for 13 years where she taught in the Oldham County Schools. She and her husband, Chris, moved to the area this past year when Chris was named the Karl Peterson Head Swimming and Diving Coach here at Notre Dame. Beth and Chris have quickly fallen in love with Notre Dame and the Michiana area. Inspired by the talent and optimism of the Notre Dame family as well as Notre Dame’s mission to be a force for good in the world, she looks forward to working alongside her new colleagues and benefactors to serve the world and create opportunities for others.

Beth and Chris have three sons: Jack (13), Owen (10), and Brady (8). The family enjoys travel, the outdoors, and playing / watching sports (swimming for dad, of course, and baseball, basketball, and hockey for the boys). Beth likes to read and has competed in several marathons and half marathons.

Welcome, Beth Lindauer!
