Jean Gorman to transition to Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health

Dear team,

It is with very mixed emotions that I announce Jean Gorman will be retiring from the University of Notre Dame effective March 3rd.  Jean will be moving to Palo Alto, California and joining the staff of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, which serves as the fundraising arm of the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and Stanford Department of Pediatrics.  After a decade serving the mission of Our Lady, Jean’s impact stretches broadly across the Department of Development, School of Architecture, Hesburgh Libraries, Graduate School, Innovation Park, and many others around campus that had the great fortune of working with her.  Shannon and I will soon be in touch with you regarding the transition of Jean’s liaison responsibilities as well as those around gift agreements.

Personally, I will forever be grateful to Jean for her advancement knowledge, commitment to Notre Dame, and friendship.  Please join me in wishing Jean all the best.  She will be greatly missed, but always welcome at her home, Notre Dame.


My best,



Micki Kidder

Associate Vice President and Executive Director of Development
