Who Are the Dean's Fellows?

The Dean's Fellows are undergraduates in the College of Arts and Letters who were nominated by professors for having shown outstanding leadership and intellectual curiosity. The group strives to promote opportunities for intellectual growth across campus and is most well-known for its annual speaker series. The Fellows also assist the College of Arts and Letters with various events, most notably the Open House for early-admitted students. Please see the About Page and Members Page for more information on the group.


Dean's Fellows Events

Each year, the Dean's Fellows organize high-profile lectures and debates to promote intellectual curiosity and cultural inclusion. These events entertain subject matters that are truly contended at the school and are of particular interest to students, faculty, and all other members of the Notre Dame community. Events for the 2020-21 academic year are forthcoming, but learn more about our past events here
