It is with mixed emotions that I share Dave Daley has decided to take a new role at the University. Starting January 2, Dave will be joining his stewardship partners in the Office of Financial Aid as Assistant Director. The good news is that Dave will still have the opportunity to work on behalf of deserving Notre Dame students and families, which as you know is a mission very near to his heart as an ND alum and former scholarship recipient himself.
I wish to thank Dave for all his hard work the past two and a half years managing the reporting and compliance of more than 2,000 scholarship funds and enhancing the stewardship of financial aid donors. In addition to existing responsibilities, Dave led the development of a new project and stewardship tool — Where Are They Now? — which geographically maps and shares update letters and videos from former financial aid recipients. Dave also helped launch a new stewardship event this fall — What Though The Odds — with more than 250 financial aid donor families and student recipients meeting up on campus to share their stories in person. I know that we will still lean on Dave’s expertise and dedication as a financial aid partner in the years to come, but I’m excited that his work continues on student impact at the place he loves dearly.
If anyone on the team has an interest in this role, please let me know. We will post the role in the near future.
Congratulations, Dave! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for all of your help!
Good luck in your new role, Dave.
Congratulations Dave. Best of Luck.
What a loss for us. Dave, you were the best. The ultimate professional and so easy to work with. Godspeed in your new role!
