The Dean's Fellows is a select and diverse student group comprised of sophomores, juniors, and seniors dedicated to the liberal arts and to the intellectual enhancement of the campus community. The Fellows partner with a variety of centers and institutions on campus in order to facilitate engagement amongst the academic, social, and cultural aspects of life at Notre Dame. The contributions and experiences of the Fellows include:
- Initiating, organizing, and hosting an annual speaker series;
- Serving on student collaboration committees for the University;
- Volunteering advice and time at the Arts & Letters Open House for early admitted students; and
- Participating in culturally enriching experiences (art exhibits, lectures, operas, etc.) on campus, locally, and around the world.
Students who participate in the Fellows are motivated, curious, and committed. It is an organization that values diversity and passion above all and is committed to seeing both individual and group ideas realized. As of Spring 2018, there are 27 members of the Dean's Fellows.
