Nominations are now open for the 2020 Domer Dozen, a program honoring outstanding young graduates (aged 32 and younger) for their significant contributions and extraordinary dedication to faith, service, learning and work.  

Nominees should display extraordinary dedication to being forces for good in the world, having already made significant contributions in one of the four core tenets of the Notre Dame Alumni Association’s mission statement:

  • Faith: Recognizing and honoring those that have drawn inspiration from Catholic intellectual and moral traditions in order to galvanize God’s people
  • Service: Recognizing and honoring those who have promoted human dignity, pursued the common good, and stood in solidarity with the marginalized and poor
  • Learning: Recognizing and honoring those who have used scholarship to engage with and to better the world
  • Work: Recognizing and honoring those who have discerned, discovered, and pursued meaningful work in order to be forces for good.

Candidates can be undergraduate, graduate or professional alumni of the University, and nominations should be made by peers, faculty members, employers, family or others who know the nominee well. Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations can be submitted through August 31, 2020.  Winners are selected by the YoungND Board and a panel of faculty members.
