ND Loyal Student Volunteers

Our three pillars of building community, inspiring action, and serving students animate our work as we make the Notre Dame mission a reality.

Our Mission

Through ND Loyal Student Volunteers, juniors and seniors on campus pursue the mission of being a powerful force for good in the world through philanthropic education and action. This network of student volunteers are servant leaders who all rally together to inspire philanthropy on campus. Our three pillars of building community, inspiring action, and serving our fellow students animate our work as we make the Notre Dame mission a reality.

Build Community

The ND Loyal Student Volunteers, like the greater Notre Dame Family strives to be an example of faith, hope, and love. Our cohort of 40 students connect their enthusiasm for Notre Dame with their diverse personal communities, bringing together roommates, classmates, and teammates with the causes on campus most relevant to them. ND Loyal Student volunteers also engage with the staff in the Development Office for mentorship opportunities while also learning from our ND Loyal alumni volunteers. Our student volunteers consistently seek to build and deepen relationships, lean on one another, and celebrate our shared responsibility to make the world a better place.

Inspire Action

ND Loyal Student Volunteers extend the incredible invitation to participate in the mission of Notre Dame and the opportunity to make a deep and profound difference. As a community of students with diverse interests, backgrounds, and passions, we believe this invitation is inherently intended for all. In spreading this invitation, student volunteers help their fellow students feel inspired to give their time, talent, and treasure back to Notre Dame by the time that they graduate.

Serve Students

ND Loyal Student Volunteers are motivated by the importance of philanthropy. Our community recognizes the tremendous value, privilege, and responsibility of receiving the Notre Dame undergraduate experience. As current students, we seek to ensure this experience is available, enhanced, and expanded for  future students who will walk in our footsteps. This year, we hope to inspire all seniors to make a gift back to Notre Dame to ensure they leave a lasting legacy on a place they love.


Emma Uremovic

  • Clase of 2023
  • Chicago, IL

Emma is a senior at Notre Dame studying Business Analytics and Sustainability. She is from Chicago, IL, but was lucky enough to call both Cavanaugh Hall and later Johnson Family Hall her home on campus. She was fortunate enough to study abroad in London during the spring semester of her junior year. A few things she especially enjoyed while at Notre Dame were acting as a consultant to local entrepreneurs in the South Bend Entrepreneurship and Adversity Program and participating and traveling with the Student International Business Council. Her favorite experience thus far has been calling with ND Listens, a student engagement group on campus that reaches out to and connects with alumni, family, and friends of Notre Dame.  Through ND Listens, she received the opportunity to help create the student division of ND Loyal, the ND Loyal Student Volunteers. Wanting to show her appreciation for all that Notre Dame has given her, especially as a student on financial aid, she took the opportunity and ran with it! In its first year, ND Loyal Student Volunteers has helped educate students about the importance of philanthropy, raised money for the mission behind Baraka Bouts, and worked to steward students who have made gifts to Notre Dame. While she doesn’t want to graduate and leave Notre Dame, she is excited to join the ND Loyal crew and see how ND Loyal Student Volunteers grows in the many years to come.

Elizabeth is a current senior here at Notre Dame, majoring in Neuroscience and minoring in Science, Technology, and Values. She is originally from the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, but on campus she lived in Flaherty Hall for three years. Elizabeth’s time at Notre Dame has been spent building the dorm community as Snack Commissioner and Zeal Pillar Head, researching in an anatomy Lab, and working at ND Listens. Elizabeth also had the opportunity to study abroad in London her junior year, seeing how Notre Dame is truly a force for good not just in South Bend, but throughout the world. After graduation, Elizabeth will be attending medical school to pursue a career as a neurologist or OB-GYN!

Elizabeth was one of the first two chairs of the ND Loyal Student Volunteers and has really loved the opportunity to inspire her classmates to give back to the community that has shaped her Notre Dame experience. “I am really passionate about giving back to my Notre Dame community because of the immense connections and passions built here and I look forward to continuing my work after graduation through ND Loyal!”
