Notre Dame’s Presidential Team Irish Award recognizes staff exemplifying the University’s core values. This fall, the Pulte Institute’s SHARE (Supporting Holistic and Actionable Research in Education) team received the award. On Saturday, SHARE was recognized on the field during the football game against Wake Forest. SHARE is a five-year cooperative agreement between USAID and the University that advances global education priorities to improve learning outcomes.
William J. Pulte Director Tracy Kijewski-Correa was also honored on the field on Nov. 18, receiving an All-Faculty Team distinction from University Provost John McGreevy. Professor Kijewski-Correa — who also serves as the inaugural director of the National Science Foundation’s Structural Extreme Event Reconnaissance (StEER) network, a global team of engineers who use data science to rapidly assess the impact of major disasters — was selected for her use of interdisciplinary approaches to address the challenges facing communities living in poverty as a means to promote human flourishing.
