Summer Service Learning Program
Rooted in the Catholic social tradition and in collaboration with Notre Dame Clubs and site partners across the country, the Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) is a three-credit Theology course with eight-week immersive service placements in communities on the margins of society. Students develop a deeper conviction of the kinship of all persons made equally in God’s image, a more disciplined awareness of the causes and effects of social injustice, and a lifelong commitment to vocations marked by solidarity and the pursuit of the common good. The Notre Dame Club of Atlanta is sponsoring three students this summer.
Our first two SSLP students arrive on May 18th and the third arrives the following week. The students will working at Catholic Charities in Refugee Resettlement, Sheltering Arms, and the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
When the arrive, I would like to encourage our club to welcome them to Atlanta by inviting them to any events the students might enjoy. Examples of such events are sporting events, Masses, weekend lake visits, Masses, home cooked family meals, etc.
As they in the midst of preparing for exams, we will share their contact information before they arrive. If you have questions about the Summer Service Learning Program or helping the students for this year or future years, contact our SSLP Coordinator:

We are planning our annual Universal Notre Dame Celebration in early to mid August in conjunction with the Student Send-off.

Notre Dame Clubs across the country host a Universal Notre Dame (UND) Celebration once a year. This flagship Notre Dame Alumni Association event provides local alumni, friends and family an opportunity to connect with the University via keynote speakers and to celebrate their local club’s accomplishments.
The speakers who represent the University are experienced and impressive administrators, faculty and staff who come from all departments within the University. Together they participate in more than 145 of your UND Celebrations each year.
Our speaker this year is Michael Sullivan, the Senior Director of the Notre Dame Alumni Association. As a member of the Notre Dame Alumni Association Senior Management Team, Mike is responsible for Alumni Programs Operations. The Programs Team oversees a wide range of activities including domestic and international Notre Dame clubs, reunions, faith and spirituality initiatives, as well as academic and professional programs designed at drawing Notre Dame alumni and friends into a closer relationship with the University on campus, on-line, and in their local communities.
