Student Welfare & Development (SWD) is committed to the total development of Notre Dame student-athletes. SWD fosters the cultivation of skills that prepare student-athletes for the ultimate competitive challenge: life. Based on the founding principles of the university, SWD implements programs and activities designed to nurture and develop the mind, body, and spirit.
Student Welfare & Development will provide opportunities for Notre Dame student-athletes to develop the skills necessary to successfully transition into the University, their sport or program, and the community. Through educational programming and a host of other additional resources, SWD will empower all participants to make positive decisions in order to reach their full potential as students, athletes, and citizens.
