“Marie Lynn was appointed provost of Notre Dame on March 17, 2020, just as the University was sending students home and initiating online learning. It was a tremendously difficult time to step into a new position. Through the transition and after assuming the provostship full time, Marie Lynn never wavered and played a critical role in helping the University cope with the many challenges of the pandemic. We are deeply grateful for her leadership.

“That experience, along with her many accomplishments as a faculty member, researcher and administrator, will serve her and UIC well. I extend my sincere congratulations and will keep her in my prayers as she takes on this new opportunity.”
