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

Join us for our Fall 2019 Series with the theme "God. Country. Notre Dame." These events will discuss our Catholic identity when it comes to 3 different spheres. Our first event ("God") entitled "Why did the Church go wrong? Correcting the Course" covered the abuse crisis in the Catholic Church on October 1,2019. 

Our second event in the series discusses the political state in America, especially in relation to immigration. This event involves a debate between two world-renowned experts on the ethics of immigration and citizenship, Dr. Jason Brennan (Georgetown) and Dr. Christopher Heath Wellman (Washington University in St. Louis), on Thursday, December 5th, 2019 from 5-7 PM in DeBartolo 101. Learn more about this event here.

Our final event will continue with the "God. Country. Notre Dame.," finishing with "Notre Dame," featuring the voices of student leaders on the idea of Catholic consistency. Stay tuned for more details!
