Deb Rotman, director of undergraduate studies for Notre Dame’s Department of Anthropology, has been appointed director of the Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE).

Rotman joined the Notre Dame faculty in 2006. In addition to her administrative responsibilities in the anthropology department, she has taught courses on the experience of 19th century Irish immigrants in America, working with her students on archival research, oral history and archeological excavations in South Bend and Beaver Island, Mich., and during week-long summer study visits to Ireland.

CUSE provides undergraduate students in all the University’s colleges opportunities for research, scholarship, and creative projects. The center also assists them in finding faculty mentors, funding and venues for the publication or presentation of their work, and promotes applications to national Fellowship programs and prepares them in their application process.
