Why he left D.C. to come to Notre Dame

Author: Michelle McDaniel

Leading communications for a congresswoman, the Department of Homeland Security, the White House, and the association that oversees the nation's top research universities is no easy feat. It takes a special expertise to navigate the complexities of these high-stakes roles, and that special expertise just found his way to Notre Dame.

In the 12th episode of For Good, Pedro Ribeiro, Vice President for Public Affairs and Communications, discusses the significance of Notre Dame joining the Association of American Universities, the unique role Notre Dame plays in bringing together leaders from opposite sides of the aisle in D.C., and the importance of maintaining the student experience for student-athletes as the landscape of college athletics evolves.

New episodes of For Good: Stories from Notre Dame drop on select weekdays at giving.nd.edu/stories and the ND Loyal YouTube channel. You can also listen to the podcast on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

A sincere thank you to the Notre Dame Family for making stories like these possible! It's because of you that Notre Dame is such a powerful force for good in the world.
