Congratulations and Gratitude for Al Bucci

After nearly 18 years working in service of Our Lady’s mission, Al Bucci has announced his retirement. We offer Al our deep appreciation, gratitude and congratulations.

Al has been an incredible member of the UR Development team. His kindness, leadership and team-focused approach will be missed. Al has developed strong relationships internally and externally with benefactors. His work has left a lasting positive impact at Notre Dame and with the students the University serves. He leaves this role feeling blessed for the opportunity to have worked at Notre Dame and grateful for all his friends and Development colleagues. His last official day will be August 31st.

A 1977 graduate of Notre Dame, Al walked on the football team and still claims he has eligibility left if only offenses would utilize the fullback. He met Marilyn, his wife and a 1978 St. Mary’s College grad, here. They have four children, two who graduated from Notre Dame.

He looks forward to writing more novels and “hanging out a bit.” He promises that whatever he does, it’ll be fun. He added, “I’ll be watching, too, as I know the development office will continue its great success.”

Thank you, Al for all that you have provided in service of Notre Dame for nearly two decades. We wish you all the best that life has to offer as you, literally and figuratively, write these next chapters.
