Residence Hall Rector (FT), University of Notre Dame, Indiana

The University of Notre Dame is now accepting applications for Residence Hall Rectors. Much of a Notre Dame student’s adult formation takes place in the residence hall community with the guiding presence and leadership of rectors. The hall is a pivotal environment for a student’s intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual maturation. Rectors provide a critical role in helping the University achieve its mission to form young women and men well, educating their minds and hearts to be a force for good in the world--a tradition born out of the charism of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the founding order of the University of Notre Dame.  With a dedicated chapel in every residence hall, each Rector is considered the Pastor of their hall, supporting the growth and flourishing of spiritual life there. The current Rector cohort includes 33 Rectors in total, including priests of the Congregation of Holy Cross, women from other religious orders, and single lay women and men, all of various age groups, backgrounds, education, and ethnicities. The Rector position is a live-in, full-time, 10-month position in the undergraduate halls (with new Rectors arriving early for orientation and training). The position offers full-time benefits, including a retirement plan, a furnished apartment and a meal plan.   Please visit to learn more about the role and click here to apply:
