Notre Dame has a long history of outstanding student-athletes being named to All-American 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 every home football game, the provost will honor a different member of the faculty on the field during a timeout. These seven individuals have been chosen from across Notre Dame’s colleges and schools for their excellence in research, teaching, and service to the University.
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.

Dorini Family Professor of Energy Studies in the College of Engineering,
Chair of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
“This is a wonderful environment to be a scholar and a teacher because those two activities—scholarship and teaching—are valued and integrated in a purposeful manner. Notre Dame also takes seriously the idea of a university, to borrow Newman’s words, as a place where various intellectual disciplines come together to seek the truth and to make students better, more well-rounded people.”
Associate Professor of Finance,
Associate Dean for Graduate Programs in the Mendoza College of Business
“It is extremely rewarding to work in a business school that is not a typical professional school. At Notre Dame, I have the opportunity to engage with highly qualified students who have experienced not just business training but also a broad liberal arts education, and who want to use business to make a difference in the world.”
Rev. Donald P. McNeill, C.S.C., Professor of Transformative Latino Leadership,
Joseph and Elizabeth Robbie Professor of Political Science,
Director of the Institute for Latino Studies,
Acting Chair of the Department of Political Science
“Notre Dame allows me to live my Catholic faith, pursue my research on American political development, and teach the next generation of leaders in the country, the world, and the Church as no other university can.”
Professor of Law,
Notre Dame Presidential Fellow
“Notre Dame is a great place to study intellectual property and technology law because it is a place where we are entirely comfortable thinking about what kinds of innovation really promote human flourishing.”
Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry
“I like working at Notre Dame because my colleagues and my students are interesting people, they’re passionate about a lot of things, and they value the human side of science and technology.”
Professor of Architecture
“The unique great privilege of being a faculty member at the University of Notre Dame is to teach, pursue, and serve truth within a Catholic community that unites persons of different ages, roles, scholarly disciplines, and points of view as equals before God while grounding the academic vocation itself in nature, history, and divine generosity.”
Professor of Sociology,
Co-editor, American Sociological Review,
Director of the Center for the Study of Social Movements
“Every day I think about what a privilege it is to be part of the Notre Dame family. What happens here is consequential not only for shaping important national dialogue but also for improving the lives of people everywhere.”
