Welcome to the Team, Breyan Tornifolio!

I am delighted to announce that Breyan Tornifolio will be joining the team as the Associate Director, Student Philanthropy, reporting to me, effective June 8th.  Breyan will be responsible for advancing our objectives in integrated student philanthropy in support of the Development Office and the University as a whole.  She will coordinate the requirements for this program by partnering with organizations across the university including Student Affairs, the Academy, Institutes and Centers, Athletics, the Alumni Association, and others.

Breyan is joining the Strategic Marketing team after participating in the University’s rotation program for the last 18 months.  Breyan has significant experience working broadly in the student domain at Notre Dame including roles as a rector and the chaplain for the Women’s Basketball Team.  She also led the overall planning and execution of the celebration of Fr. Hesburgh’s life at the University upon his passing.  Breyan brings an intense commitment to the development of Notre Dame’s students and a love for the mission of the University, in addition to her professional skills and leadership capabilities.

Please join me in congratulating Breyan on her new role and supporting her in her transitions.

In Notre Dame,

Andrea Bullock

Thank You Emails for Financial Aid Donors

In conjunction with Commencement Weekend, thank you emails are being sent to financial aid donors from Katherine Lane. The content includes both graduate statistics and gratitude.
There are five segments: scholarship donors, law fellowship donors, business fellowship donors, graduate school fellowship donors, and donors who have given to both scholarships and fellowships. Recipients of the email have given either $100,000 endowed in their lifetime to financial aid or $10,000 endowed or expendable in the last four years.
