Co-facilitated by the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development and the President's Circle and Cavanaugh Council programs, The President's Circle Mentor Program is a prestigious three month program throughout the duration of the summer that connects students one-on-one to members of the President's Circle council, some of the most trusted and loyal leaders from the Notre Dame family. These well-established professionals are often in positions of senior leadership as CEOs, partners, surgeons, lawyers, vice presidents, managing directors, and many other influential and challenging roles.

Students who apply to the President's Circle Mentor Program will receive personal guidance, feedback, and insight from their individual mentor throughout the summer months. With three touch points between the student and the mentor, students will be given the opportunity to ask their mentor about a variety of topics such as academic experiences, interviewing, networking, work/life balance, and transitioning into a professional workplace post-graduation.
