In memoriam: Notre Dame Trustee Robert M. Conway

Robert M. Conway, a member of the University of Notre Dame’s Board of Trustees for more than three decades, and a staunch supporter of the Medieval Institute, died Sunday, January 15, in New York City. He was 78. Bob was an accomplished business leader, a generous benefactor, a Trustee and loyal alumnus of Notre Dame and, above all, a true gentleman,” University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., said. “He was also to many of us a dear friend, whom we will miss deeply.”

Propose a Working Group

Each year the Medieval Institute sponsors Working Groups, an opportunity for faculty fellows and graduate students to investigate a topic relating to shared research interests. Applications are due April 1st.

Alumni Spotlight

Each fall and spring we present a new Alumni Spotlight featuring the career paths of Institute alumni. Our Fall '22 Spotlight features Alex Miller (B.A./B.S. '92). We asked him to share with us his journey from Institute graduate to Principal for Global Head of Strategy and Principal Strategy Lead in the U.S. for KPMG, LLP, one of the largest accounting firms in the world. His story reminds us that medieval studies instills students with the skills and values to thrive outside of academia, and we are excited to share it with you today!
