I have entrusted responsibility for this issue toJohnAffleck-Graves, the executive vice president of the University, and Robert McQuade, our associate vice president for human resources. I am confident of their skill, their good faith and their concern for the well-being of our employees and the University as a whole.At Notre Dame, we value the contributions of every member of our staff, who help make this University the special place it is.And we are committed to paying fair and just wages and benefits to our workers, as a matter of justice and of fidelity to Catholic social teaching.p. _ Contact: Don Wycliff, associate vice president for news and information, 574-631-8696 or wycliff.1@nd.edu
