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.
