The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) has hired Megan Mancini to be its new Program Administrator.

In this newly-created position at the NDIAS, Mancini will assist the staff with special projects, help administer the Teaching Lab Fellowship and Undergraduate Ethics Fellowship programs, and assist with event planning and communications.

“We are thrilled to welcome Megan to our team,” said Meghan Sullivan, Director of the NDIAS and the Wilsey Family College Professor of Philosophy. “Her top-notch administrative skills and deep experience with Notre Dame systems will greatly benefit our staff and our operations. As we grow our fellowship programs and take on bigger initiatives, Megan will be a vital part of our small but mighty team.”

Mancini comes to the NDIAS from the DeBartolo Performing Arts, where she spent the last 10 years working at DeBartolo Performing Arts Center as the Senior House Manager. In that capacity, she managed the usher team, enhanced the patron experience, and assisted in the execution of special events.

“I'm thrilled to be part of such a dynamic team,” Mancini said. “The community projects and the passion behind all that this team does perfectly aligns with my personal goals and interests. Looking at their portfolio of accomplishments, I am so lucky to join a group with the desire to do good in the world and have fun while doing it. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me in this endeavor.”

The NDIAS convenes an interdisciplinary group of faculty fellows, top doctoral candidates, and undergraduate scholars to study questions that require a joint focus, benefit from sustained research and discussion, and advance our understanding on core issues that affect our ability to lead valuable, meaningful lives.
