NDR Cares Committee

The NDR Cares Committee is dedicated to helping and supporting Notre Dame Research (NDR) employees during times of hardship, such as damaging weather, unexpected loss, and other unforeseen circumstances.

Need Assistance?

Employees and managers can contact NDRCares@nd.edu should you or one of your employees experience hardship. NDR Cares will review the request and respond with potential resources and/or options that may be able to assist.

Want to Help?

The care and concern for colleagues is paramount in fostering togetherness within NDR. If you are in need, please know that NDR is here to help. To assist NDR teammates who are requesting help due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, please complete this volunteer sign-up.


NDR Cares aims to strengthen the community through various volunteering opportunities throughout the year. All volunteering opportunities scheduled during business hours require supervisor approval. Upcoming opportunities will be announced via the weekly internal newsletter, Dome to Den.
