Welcome to Barbara Kelly, Assistant Director, Parents Program

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I introduce Barbara M. Kelly as our newest colleague in development at the University of Notre Dame.  Barbara will be joining us on Monday, June 20, 2011 as the new Assistant Director, Parents Program within the office of Annual Giving Programs.

Barbara has 41 years of history with Notre Dame as a spouse, proud parent of two Notre Dame alumni, and as a friend.  For the past 11 years, Barbara has been the Director of Development at Holy Family Cathedral School in Orange County, California, where she started, developed, and each year increased the school’s donor base and donations.  Barbara has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana and a Master of Arts degree from Georgetown University.

In the position of Assistant Director, Parents Program, Barbara will be responsible for conceptualizing and implementing a comprehensive effort to provide premier engagement opportunities for the Notre Dame parent community while also securing unrestricted financial support for the University through the Annual Fund.  As part of this comprehensive effort, Barbara will coordinate a cross-functional approach to all aspects of Parent engagement at Notre Dame.  Barbara’s demonstrated success creating a fundraising program and overseeing its growth, her commitment to advancing Catholic education, and her understanding of the Notre Dame parent perspective are great strengths as we endeavor to enhance engagement with our parent community.

Please join me in welcoming Barbara.

Best regards,

Anne-Marie Campbell

Eleven at ESC are CPR/AED Certified

Red Cross CPR/AED certification was issued recently to eleven employees at the Eddy Street Development office. Given the large number of people working on the third floor (over 100), plus the large number of visitors, especially in the fall, it was felt that having an AED to use in case of heart attack was a wise idea. Congratulations to the following who completed the training course:  Mary Andersen, Ashley Baranowski, Deena Chamberlin, Cristi Ganyard, Lynn Hubert, Carolyn Lax, Kris Machalleck, Heather Moriconi, Patty Smith, Susan Shields and Tim Yoder. This valuable training is offered through ND’s Health Center; to get more information, contact Bro. Louis Hurcik.

Summer Hours/Dress

Dear colleagues,  

Effective May 23rd through Friday, August 19th, we will observe a business casual dress.  While this will result in a more casual dress, please ensure to maintain a professional and positive image of the University for our visitors, guests, and co-workers.   

Moreover, you may adjust your summer work schedule, during this same time period, by decreasing your lunchtime to thirty (30) minutes.  Adjustments to work schedules should not disrupt the efficient completion of daily work responsibilities, and I encourage you to work through any questions with your supervisor. 

If you have any questions regarding these items, please discuss with your manager or contact me at 631-6526.

As always, thank you for your excellent work and dedication to Our Lady’s University.

UR Holy Rollers Update – Not Too Late to Join the Team!

The University Relations Holy Rollers team is in second place in the Bike to Work Week Challenge sub team standings as of this morning!  Our team has logged 397.12 miles to date (and that’s with only 17 of the 22 members reporting.)  The College of Science is in first place at 656.94 miles. In the overall Challenge, ND is in first place!

It is not too late to join the UR Holy Rollers team!  You have until midnight on Saturday, May 21 to join our team and enter your miles.  http://www.michianabiketowork.org/challenge/login/index.php

The Corporate Challenge will calculate miles ridden to and from work, or while at work (e.g., running errands, going to lunch, or places that you would have driven had you taken your car to work, or even miles traveled using mass transit). The dates of the challenge are from 12:00 a.m. Monday, May 16 through 11:59 p.m. Friday, May 20. The system will allow you to enter miles until 11:59 p.m. Saturday so those that don’t have a chance to keep their mileage up to date can have the weekend to enter the miles they have ridden.

We hope you will consider joining the team!  We will post the results of the Challenge next week.

The Office of Sustainability will be sponsoring a ‘summer challenge’ to keep the momentum going. We will keep you posted on the details as we learn more.

Go Irish!  Go Green!

Your team captains,

Heather Moriconi (Moriconi.1@nd.edu)
