Summary of the Organization: The University of Notre Dame is launching a new effort–the Initiative on Families and Communities in Transition (IFACTS)—in concert with its new strategic focus on poverty.

Summary of the Role: We are searching for a self-starter who is passionate about solving poverty to join IFACTS as its inaugural Project Manager. The IFACTS Project Manager will work with faculty and staff across the University to execute multi-faceted projects. 


Drive forward potential opportunities and development of IFACTS projects and infrastructure investments in partnership with the Initiative’s Academic Director.

Build and manage the basic infrastructure for IFACTS, including budgets, processes, and communication materials and efforts.

Serve as an extension of the Academic Director with partners, benefactors, and other stakeholders, to include leading meetings and presentations.
