Encouraging engagement and leadership.

Whether you’re a current or prospective staff member, you’ll find a wide range of resources at Notre Dame that support and encourage participation, leadership, and your professional development. Staff have access to wide range of University resources and are encouraged to share suggestions and ideas that extend beyond their departments.

Staff Suggestions

Just as we as an institution work to learn and adapt to the changing needs of our students, our division also strives to generate new ideas among staff. While staff are encouraged to share all suggestions and concerns with their immediate supervisors, they may also submit ideas and recommendations that extend beyond their departments.

Submit your ideas, concerns, or suggestions HERE.

Submissions will go to the Student Affairs email account (osa@nd.edu), which is monitored by Laura Connelly, Senior Counselor to the Vice President for Student Affairs, and Ginger Chrapliwy, Officer Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs. All suggestions will receive a response and will also be shared with relevant parties, including Student Affairs senior leaders and/or staff supervisors.
