All-Faculty Team


Notre Dame has a long history of outstanding student-athletes being named to All-America teams. We thought it was time for some of our most outstanding professors to receive similar recognition.

Enter the Notre Dame All-Faculty Team.

At home football games and during the Shamrock Series, the provost will honor a different member of the faculty. These individuals have been chosen from across the University for their excellence in research, teaching, and service to Notre Dame.

Information about each member of the All-Faculty Team will be added to this page shortly before the game at which she or he is being honored. We hope you’ll come back throughout the season to learn more about these truly exceptional scholars.

Meet the 2022 All-Faculty Team

  • Mark Sanders

    Professor of English and Africana Studies
    Director of the Notre Dame Initiative on Race and Resilience

    Sep 10 vs. Marshall

    “I came to Notre Dame to advance my scholarship and to create an infrastructure to support other scholars in the emerging field of Afro-Latin American Studies. Since arriving, I’ve been given the opportunity to expand the scope of my work to address directly systemic racism – one of the fundamental problems animating so much of African-American and Afro-Latin American writing.”

    Director, Sustainable Development Concentration, Master of Global Affairs Program

    Sep 17 vs. California

    “Being part of the faculty at Notre Dame within the Keough School [of Global Affairs] has surpassed my expectations. It is a collegial environment with faculty, staff, and students committed to thinking about important global issues and doing something about them.”

  • Diane Desierto

    Professor of Law and Global Affairs

    “In these times, we need even more collaboration, cooperation, courage, and deeply cultivated expertise among human rights defenders, students, and broader populations, to help advance and reclaim the protective reach of international human rights law for the world's most vulnerable. I am grateful to serve this mission in and through Notre Dame.”

  • Leslie L. Morgan

    Associate Librarian

    Oct 22 vs. UNLV

    “It is a transformative experience when I can come into the classroom, present a workshop, or schedule a one-to-one research consultation – with students, faculty, or visiting scholars – and they leave the experience with information resources and new ways of approaching their scholarly pursuits or research projects.”

    Leslie L. Morgan

    Associate chair of the Department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics

The field has blossomed in the years since I have been here, and I am forever grateful for the role that the University, the Mendoza College of Business, and the Management & Organization Department played in making that growth happen.”
