It is with mixed emotions that I announce that Mark Dumich will be leaving Development to pursue a new opportunity within the Mendoza College of Business. Effective Monday, June 10, Mark will continue his service to the University as the Associate Director, Institute for Global Investing.
During Mark’s time in Development, he has been an instrumental partner to countless members of the team. Since 2015, Mark has continuously raised the level of achievement within both Prospect Management and Strategic Analytics. He is an exemplary teammate in all facets and will be missed. Please join me in congratulating Mark on his new position and thanking him for his many contributions to our department.

As in previous years, Notre Dame Development will staff a water stop during the Sunburst Races on Saturday, June 1st. Many thanks to those colleagues who have offered their time and expertise. We are truly grateful. However, we are in need of at least 3 additional volunteers on June 1st. The water station will be located at Northside & IUSB Bridge and all volunteers will receive a souvenir Sunburst Races t-shirt. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Gavin McGuire or Brigette Kinney ASAP. Thank you!
Beginning Tuesday, May 21, Google will roll out a name change to Team Drives. The new name will be Shared drives, and will be changed on the web, mobile app and Drive File Stream app.
Though the name change will not impact the functionality of Team Drives, it will affect anyone who has a desktop shortcut to Drive File Stream that currently points to content in Team Drives. Once the new name Shared drive appears in your account, you will need to remove the old shortcut, and create a new shortcut in Drive File Stream.
