Wi-Fi Testing in Eddy Street Office July 21

OIT recently deployed a Wi-Fi upgrade in our Eddy Street Office space. A crucial step is to “test” what was designed and either accept or tweak the system for better efficiency. On Wednesday afternoon 7/21, two male student interns will be walking around the entire office testing the Wi-Fi signal. They do enter offices, walk the corridors around cubes and modular offices-it’s definitely a “presence” but only for a few seconds to tap a test button and record results. Please be aware. Thank you.

New Director of Development Administration

UR Colleagues,

I am thrilled to announce that Lori Ehrman Tinkey has been hired as the new Director, Development Administration effective next Monday, July 19, 2021.

Since 2012, Lori has been a valuable member of the Notre Dame community, including the past four years serving as a key contributor to both the Corporate and Foundation Relations teams as the Assistant Director of Prospect Research and Analysis reporting to Drew Buscareno. Most recently, she served as an integral member of the Coronavirus Response Unit (CRU) Surveillance Testing Task Force, concurrently leading a cross-functional supply chain management team to ensure smooth lab operations. Prior to her time in UR, Lori built the Mendoza Behavioral Laboratory (MBL), created HR programming for Mendoza, and served as para-faculty in Organizational Behavior (OB) teaching, researching, and writing.

Lori’s non-Notre Dame career has included leadership in corporate management, entrepreneurial ventures, and nonprofit organizations. Lori is a grateful ‘18 Masters of Nonprofit Administration (MNA) graduate from Notre Dame, receiving the Dean’s Award and Malone Award and graduating magna cum laude. Her B.S. Management hails from the Kelley School of Indiana University-Bloomington.
Lori and her husband, Brett, have resided in the Notre Dame region for 15 years. Before they permanently settled nearby Brett’s family, they moved around the country; each of their four children was born in a different state. As a former Jersey Girl, Lori feels completely at home on a boat off the coast of St. Joseph, MI, and enjoys island life at the family’s residence on Marina Island in the St. Joseph River.

Please join me in congratulating Lori on this new role within the Regional Development team!
