I am pleased to announce that Mary Flynt will be joining University Relations as our new Learning and Organizational Development (LOD) Associate. I look forward to her partnership in elevating LOD impact, advancing the UR mission, and embodying Notre Dame values. Most notably, Mary will be upgrading and leading onboarding- a program that impacted over 90 positions last fiscal year. (Special thanks to Linda Klaybor who is wonderfully bridging the onboarding gap between Gretchen Neely’s retirement and Mary’s eventual leadership.)
Mary joins us after four years in the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development (CCD), where she most recently served as experiential program manager. In this role, Mary oversaw the student internship funding program and helped manage several mentor programs, including Hesburgh Women of Impact and the Cavanaugh Council/President’s Circle. She served as the CCD’s primary administrator for IrishCompass, where she partnered with the Alumni Association on the ideation, strategy, implementation, and governance of the University’s professional development community. She also coordinated initiatives open to all students such as the JCPenney Suit-Up, industry career treks and employer mock interviews.
Prior to working in the CCD, Mary worked on the MBA admissions team in the Mendoza College of Business. She graduated from Ave Maria University in 2013 with a degree in business administration. When she’s not spending time with her large family, Mary is often attempting new sewing projects, going to concerts, adjusting to home ownership, volunteering as the St. Monica parish wedding coordinator, and making new friends with everyone she meets. Her husband Josh is also a member of UR, working on the marketing team in the Alumni Association.
You will be blessed to quickly introduce yourself to Mary as she begins her new role on Tuesday, August 6.
For Notre Dame,
Learning and Organizational Development
