The mission of Notre Dame’s Advisory Councils’ program is to support the University’s providential mission to be a great Catholic university by involving alumni and friends in the life of the University. The primary role of council members is to provide financial support to their greatest ability; to serve as ambassadors for the University and the academic area supported by the council; to share insight and offer counsel to the deans and directors; and to provide assistance on targeted initiatives, as appropriate.
