Please join me in welcoming Darrell Paulsen as a new Associate Regional Director in the Midwest. He will start on July 5th.
Darrell brings a twenty year relationship with the University as a graduate student and employee, along with a wealth of experience as a program manager and as a conference planner and presenter. Darrell’s strong leadership skills and relationship building experience have been deployed here at Notre Dame in service to our graduate and professional students as well as our alumni. I am excited that these same skills will now be directed toward serving Notre Dame through donor relationships.
After receiving his undergraduate and graduate degree from Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, Darrell received his Master of Divinity from Notre Dame in 1994 and has since worked for the Office of Campus Ministry for the past 17 years.
Darrell has also designed and directed national conferences for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. He is currently writing his dissertation for his Doctorate in Ministry from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago on sustaining lay leadership in the Church.
Darrell and his wife Melissa both originate from New England. Darrell and Melissa have been married for 23 years and have four children: Caitlyn is a junior at St. Mary’s College; Sean is an incoming first year student at Notre Dame; Madeleine is a junior at Penn High School; and Julia is a 7th grader at Schmucker Middle School. Melissa directs the social entrepreneurship initiatives at the Gigot Center for Entrepreneurial Studies and is a concurrent instructor in the Mendoza College of Business.
