The University of Notre Dame (ND.jobs) is accepting applications for a Associate Director of Student Affairs.
Applications will be accepted until 2/21/2020.
In 1969, Notre Dame made a bold move to require all its undergraduate architecture students to spend their third year in Rome as part of the Rome Studies Program. Directors believed the Eternal City offered students an opportunity to immerse in the classical and vernacular urban architecture which are foci of the five-year program. Fifty years later, architecture students are still residing, sketching, and studying in Rome each year. Since 2001, other undergraduates have joined them. For those students, there has been no shortage of places to explore, Papal Masses to attend, or service opportunities to join. Undergraduates from all of Notre Dame's colleges and courses of study are invited to study in Rome.
The Rome Global Gateway is made up of two facilities. The research, teaching, and learning facility in Via Ostilia is located just two blocks away from the residential living-learning community, Notre Dame's Villa on the Celio. Inaugurated in the fall of 2017, Notre Dame's Villa on the Celio brings together undergraduate Notre Dame students from across the arts and sciences that have a shared interest in expanding their academic and cultural horizons through study in Rome.
