Welcome Jeff Arnold: New College of Engineering AAD

  Welcome Jeff Arnold: New College of Engineering AAD

It is a pleasure to welcome Jeff Arnold to the University Relations team as the Academic Advancement Director for the College of Engineering.  He begins his new role on Tuesday, May 21.

Jeff’s work and reputation in Development precede him.  He joined University Relations in 2011, and currently serves both Development as a member of the Corporate Relations team and the Notre Dame Turbomachinery Lab as Project Manager.  

Prior to joining Notre Dame, Jeff spent 25 years at Honeywell Aerospace and its predecessor company Allied-Signal Aerospace, finishing his career there as Senior Product & Business Manager.  In Jeff’s role with the ND Turbomachinery Lab, he manages the budget and schedule responsibilities for six separate programs representing over $9 million in sponsored research.  As a member of Development’s Corporate Relations team, Jeff has consistently exceeded targets, with a 5-year trailing average of 125% above his annual goal.  

Responsible for driving philanthropy to the College of Engineering, we are privileged to count Jeff as part of our growing Academic Advancement Team.  Jeff has proven effective in world class corporations, and has successfully delivered in his roles here at Notre Dame.  His experience will facilitate his success as he joins our Academic Advancement team.  

Jeff’s range of professional experience is supported by his education background and leadership program experiences.  He holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering, both from Michigan Technological University.  At Honeywell, Jeff was part of the Leadership Development corporate training program, and at Notre Dame he was chosen to participate in the Burns Leadership Program.  

As an Academic Advancement Director, you can expect Jeff to be more present at Eddy Street Commons working on proposals with our fundraisers and Storytelling team, and in Fitzpatrick Hall serving the dean, faculty, staff and students of the College of Engineering.

You can contact Jeff at x3781 and jeff.arnold.62@nd.edu to extend congratulations and welcome him as AAD for the College of Engineering.
