The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office released a report Monday confirming that their office received a report from Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) regarding the investigation into a Saint Mary’s student’s death. First year Elizabeth “Lizzy” Seeberg died in an apparent suicide Sept. 10. She was 19. Seeberg had previously filed an allegation with NDSP claiming a Notre Dame student had sexually assaulted her. The alleged sexual assault took place Aug. 31, the release stated. After NDSP received the report of the sexual assault, it began an investigation. The Chicago Tribune published a story Sunday that said the University failed to inform the St. Joseph County Police and the county’s special victims unit (SVU), which handles sex offenses, about the alleged assault. St. Joseph County Prosecutor Michael Dvorak refuted this in Monday’s release. He said NDSP contacted the county’s SVU to advise them of the pending investigation. “[NDSP] has kept staff members of the SVU informed throughout the investigation,” he said. SVU is an investigative unit comprised of detectives from the South Bend, St. Joseph County and Mishawaka police departments. It investigates cases of alleged sexual battery and assault, domestic violence and child victimization. It is under the jurisdiction of the Prosecutor’s Office. NDSP, a fully authorized, independent law enforcement agency, finished its investigation of the alleged assault and forwarded it to the Prosecutor’s office Wednesday. The Prosecutor’s Office is now reviewing it and will make a statement after the review is completed. That statement will address “the next step in the process: the filing of charges, the decision not to file charges or a request for additional investigation of the allegations,” the release stated. University spokesman Dennis Brown said the University cannot comment on the specifics of any student disciplinary case due to federal law. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act protects the privacy of student records, according to the Department of Education’s website. “It’s not a matter of refusal, it’s a matter of compliance with the federal law,” Brown said. Dvorak addressed the sensitive and complex nature of such allegations in his statement. “I wish to emphasize that cases involving such allegations are complex and it would be inappropriate to rush to conclusions, rather than allowing the thorough review by prosecutors to occur in this matter,” he said.
While most people on campus lament the mountains of snow that permanently cover the ground during the winter, dozens of students chose to embrace it and compete in Friday’s I-Domer-Rod race on South Quad, with proceeds benefiting the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund. The inaugural event, sponsored by Fisher, Pangborn, Lyons and Sorin Halls, was modeled after the famous Iditarod sled race but involved 12 teams of two to seven students pulling sleds with one student “musher” through the snow. “I was quite surprised at how many people showed up and how excited people seemed to be about the event, especially because people are always a little wary of going to an event that’s not already well-known,” Lyons Hall co-president Meghan Eastman, one of the planners of the event, said. The event involved a women’s bracket, which included teams from Pangborn, Badin, Farley, Lyons and Cavanaugh, and a men’s bracket, which had teams from Knott, Alumni and Fisher. Team Cool Runnings from Pangborn emerged as the women’s champions, and the Knott Men won the men’s bracket. Each first place team received $75 to an Eddy Street Commons business of its choice, and the second place teams received $35. The event was the brainchild of Fisher president Brian Schwartze, Pangborn president Betsy McGovern, Lyons co-presidents Eastman and Catherine Gillespie and Sorin president Colin King, who created the event during a brainstorming session at the Team ND student leadership retreat in August. “All of us got to talking about doing sled races across South Quad like the Iditarod,” Eastman said. “Obviously, we couldn’t use dogs, so we settled for Domers.” The two pairs of brother-sister dorms began planning the details of the event after winter break. After receiving funding from Hall President’s Council, the presidents realized their respective halls would not need to cover any additional costs of the event, McGovern said. “There was no reason for us to make a profit from the event, so we thought we should give the proceeds from the event to a cause that means a lot to Notre Dame,” McGovern said. After Schwartze became aware that Meg Swaback, a high school friend of Declan Sullivan, made 1,500 bracelets in memory of Sullivan, he contacted Swaback offering to help distribute the bracelets in exchange for donations at Notre Dame. Schwartze said the bracelets, engraved with “Celebrate Life — DDS 10.27.10,” gave him the idea of having the I-Domer-Rod support Sullivan’s memory as well. Schwartze presented his idea to the group, who unanimously decided to give all proceeds to the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund for its strong connection to both the Notre Dame and Fisher Hall communities, Eastman said. “Brian [Schwartze], being a fellow Fisher resident and friend of Declan’s, asked how we would feel about donating to Declan’s memorial fund,” Eastman said. “We were all completely for it.” Each sled team’s $10 entry fee and additional donations will go to the fund. Although the event was a new experience for students, both Eastman and McGovern agreed that it was a definite success that attracted several last-minute sled teams, and they look forward to next year’s edition of the I-Domer-Rod. “Our hope for next year is that more people participate because it ended up being a really fun event,” McGovern said. “We were thrilled that so many people came out and enjoyed it.” Although her team did not win the women’s bracket, Cavanaugh senior Melissa Truitt enjoyed spending time with her friends. “The falling snow definitely added to the atmosphere, and it’s good to see everyone having fun on a Friday in support of a good cause,” Truitt said. Pangborn sophomore Kat Wilson also valued the friendly bonding the event facilitated. “Despite our team’s loss, I can definitely see the value in this event in the quality time I’ve spent with friends and the hot chocolate that rivaled that of Starbucks,” Wilson said. Brynne Miller, a sophomore member of Pangborn’s Team Cool Runnings, summed up her thoughts on her team’s win and the I-Domer-Rod as a whole. “Cuba Gooding, Jr. would love this,” she said.
Students braved snow and below-freezing temperatures to watch the Irish battle the Brigham Young University Cougars on Saturday in the last home football game of the season. Senior Laura Stangler said her last student game-day experience was very bittersweet. “The cold was a bummer, but it was worth it,” she said. “I was glad it was snowing and not raining. I know a lot of people who didn’t go to the game or didn’t stay for the entire game. … But it was definitely a lot of fun, and the marshmallow fight was really cool.” The traditional senior marshmallow fight occurred during halftime, Stangler said. Most of the marshmallows stayed in the stands, but a few fell on the field. “There were a bunch of guys who were trying to test their strength of arm by throwing marshmallows as far as they could,” Stangler said. “And then there were people who got in trouble with the ushers for throwing them at the ushers. It was really fun, though.” Stangler said she appreciated the special seniors-only traditions after the game, as well. “The entire stadium was cleared out, except for the senior section,” she said. “We got to watch the band, and then we were allowed to go on the field. It’s a cool tradition, and it’s something I’m really grateful for.” Emotions in the senior section were “all over the place,” Stangler said. “There were a lot of people who were just in disbelief that it was our last game,” she said. “The four years really flew by, … but most people were excited.” Senior Patrick Schmitz said he felt the game was a great bonding experience for the senior class. “I didn’t really watch the game very much,” he said. “But I made friends with the people standing behind me, and we were swapping marshmallows because we had different brands.” Because it was their last game as students, Schmitz said he and his friends tried to participate in as many game-day traditions as possible. “We woke up early to go to a friend’s house and then out to tailgates and stopped by concession stands,” he said. “After the game, we went to candlelight dinner in the dining hall.” Freshman Kaylee Correa said Brigham Young fans did not have a noticeable presence on campus. “I was working a concession stand and I didn’t see many of them before the game,” she said. “Even at the game, their fan section seemed really small.” Watching the seniors’ marshmallow fight was enjoyable, Correa said. “I thought once they started it they would run out, but then it started up again,” she said. “I thought it was really cool, but I didn’t really understand what the point was.” Correa said the snow and cold greatly affected her game-day experience. “The girls’ bathroom was really crowded the entire game because it was warm in there,” she said. “I’m glad that I stayed, though, so now I can say that I experienced an entire football game in the snow. That’s an accomplishment for me.” Contact Catherine Owers at [email protected]
Senior Kelly McGee stated the obvious: Notre Dame students are dedicated to their professional futures. However, these futures could already be influenced by an uncontrollable factor — gender.The Gender Relations Center (GRC) hosted a dinner and conversation Tuesday night to discuss the relevance of gender in the workplace. Eric Love, director of staff diversity and inclusion in the Office of Human Resources, began the conversation by talking about the slow progression of gender equality in the workplace.“Unfortunately, our society’s not moved far enough along yet … to make external changes outside of individuals,” Love said. “It takes a lot of patience, it takes a tough, thick skin sometimes to transform a whole environment. … I think the end goal is to create a better environment that’s conducive to everybody to do their best work in the workplace.”Love talked about the importance of diversity in order for creativity and innovation to take place. He talked about his own experience being bi-racial, and how growing up, he was told he would have to work twice as hard to achieve half the credit of his white counterparts.“That’s almost the same for transgender [people] and women in sciences. It’s not fair, it’s an unfair burden, but I think we’re making some movement in some areas,” Love said.Victoria Goodrich, director of the first-year engineering program and advisor to the Society of Women Engineers club, talked about the lack of women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) majors.“Within the College of Engineering there are about 30 percent women, which is actually double the national average. But if you go into actual engineering companies it’s about 11 percent women,” Goodrich said. “I never had a woman STEM professor as a student until I went into graduate school.”Maternity leave was another topic brought into the conversation. Kevin J. Burke, assistant professor at the department of language and literacy education at the University of Georgia, said the United States is one of the few developed countries that does not mandate paid maternity leave, and even when maternity leave was offered, in many cases the expectation women would not to take it.“When I had my daughter, my friends told me they would understand because it happens all the time,” Goodrich said. “But I was actually only the second person who was in that engineering department that had a child … so they actually never had this problem. That was just something I had to know and I had to know how to negotiate that.”Burke said that one of the ways to drive change is through policy and voting. He said change takes smart young people who are committed and willing to do the hard work to make history.“History also matters,” he said. “The fact that education is predominantly women has a lot to do with the fact that we’ve been paying women a lot less money and there wasn’t a lot of money in the profession. Some of this is about figuring out the history.”Tags: gender inequality, women in STEM, women in the workplace
In 1993, Fr. Sean McGraw, C.S.C. and Fr. Tim Scully, C.S.C. received $5,000 from the President of the University to found the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) with the goal of preserving and spreading access to quality Catholic education throughout the country.“The core mission of the program is to provide a ray of hope through educational excellence to underserved children,” Scully said in an interview.Scully, who now serves as chair of the ACE Advisory Board, said the program initially began by training 40 recent college graduates — nearly all from Notre Dame — in education and sending them to teach in Catholic schools across the country, typically in low-income communities, as ACE Teaching Fellows. Since it’s inception, the highly-selective ACE Teaching Fellows program now receives over 400 applications a year and selects approximately 90 graduates — roughly half of which graduated from Notre Dame — to participate in the program.“We live in intentional communities of four to seven people,” Scully said. “We’re in 35 cities across the United States. These teaching fellows go out into their communities and teach in underserved Catholic schools for a period of two years, and they return to campus during the summers to receive a master’s degree and accreditation and licensing as a teacher. I would describe it as an awesome leadership experience where you’re giving your heart and soul away to needy kids.”There are roughly 180 ACE Teaching Fellows currently operating in schools around the country.“We started this effort in a sense because it was so difficult for some under-resourced dioceses and schools to find great teaching talent, and so we’re looking for very talented people — not necessarily the highest GPAs and the highest GREs — but we’re really looking for people who, in addition to native talent, just kind of bring a passion and a zeal for our mission,” Scully said.He said the program has expanded considerably since its founding, now managing several independent schools, as well as other programs.“Since we didn’t have a department of education we had no ability to impart proper professional training to those folks,” he said. “At the outset we outsourced our educational training to our partner institution on the West Coast, the University of Portland. They provided the master’s degree for the first four years of our program.”ACE now runs 15 Notre Dame ACE Academies, fully staffed and funded by the Alliance.“[Since then] we’ve built the Institute for Educational Initiatives, which houses the master’s degrees and the faculty, and so we’ve really built a pretty significant human capacity here at Notre Dame to provide professional training, today not just for teachers but for principals and for English language learners and for students who have special needs,” Scully said. “ … It’s become a very large effort. Today we’re the largest provider of resources and talent to Catholic schools across the country. We’re in one in every four Catholic schools in the U.S., mostly low-income schools and under-resourced schools.”Scully said that, under the leadership of the ACE staff, once-struggling schools are able to quickly recover.“For example, St. John the Evangelist [an elementary school in Tuscon, Arizona], which we took over 6 years ago, had 130 students and was about to close, serving hispanic students in the sixth-poorest zip code in the country,” he said. “Today that school has 450 kids in it. The student achievement scores have gone from the mid-to-low teens to the mid-sixtieth percentile.”Tags: ACE, Alliance for Catholic Education, Catholic Schools, teaching
Photo courtesy of Kevin Dreyer Maria Amenabar Farias, left, and George Azarate, right, rehearse for an upcoming production of “Native Gardens.” The comedy explores cultural divisions in the context of a fence dividing two backyards.First year master of arts student George Azarate, who plays Pablo, one of the lead characters, said the play addresses questions of intersectionality and identity.“There are these two ideas of how others see you and how you see yourself and realizing that your reality might not be everyone else’s reality,” Azarate said.Sophomore Maria Amenabar Farias, who plays Pablo’s wife Tania, said the play looks at racial and cultural divides and the importance of frequently addressing these issues.“No one is ever a hundred percent right or wrong,” Amenabar Farias said. “It’s about having that discussion about what racism is and what is or is not okay to say. It’s about how words affect people and actions affect people, and it’s about recognizing privilege which is a real thing that exists.”Azarate said although the show is a comedy, the plot also explores where people fit in social structures.“It’s lighthearted and it’s funny, but it’s also very profound,” Azarate said. “In this back–and–forth dialogue there are so many layers to this play, and for my character, his relationship with his wife and then his relationship with a neighbor shapes who he is.” “Native Gardens” was chosen by the FTT department as part of a deliberate effort to showcase diverse shows and casts.“We have been very consciously for a number of years now trying to make sure that in our season selection process we look very carefully at representation of underrepresented voices,” Dreyer said.Although the FTT department has a longstanding policy of casting roles in such a way that a performer’s race does not affect an individual’s consideration for a role, the department wants their shows to resonate more with minority groups by choosing shows with written-in diverse characters, Dreyer said.In striving for better representation in the theater, Dreyer said FTT is also committed to presenting work from diverse playwrights.“For a long time we were the theater of dead white guys; that’s the tradition around here. You look to the classics and the things that are tried and true, which happens across a lot of the departments,” Dreyer said. “There’s room for dead white guys, but there’s room for everybody else as well.”Dreyer, Azarate and Amenabar Farias all hope “Native Gardens” will help audience members recognize their own flaws, but even more, the importance of recognizing those shortcomings.“I want the audience to laugh at themselves and the people around them. I want them to recognize we all have our quirks and we all have our own perspectives,” Dreyer said. “But as long as we only look at our own perspectives, we are going to wind up in arguments like the people in the show.”Amenabar Farias said she believes theater ultimately helps people open their minds and consider a variety of issues.“We introduce an audience to a new world which makes people think,” Amenabar Farias said. “There’s some magic in theater, you feel like you’re there and the fact that anything can go wrong at any point makes it very organic. I just think that’s beautiful, and it’s something people should come and experience.”Tags: DeBartolo Preforming Arts Center, FTT, Native Gardens, Racism To kick off the spring semester, the Notre Dame Film, Television and Theatre (FTT) department will perform Karen Zacarias’ comedy “Native Gardens.” The play will be directed by FTT Director of Theatre, Kevin Dreyer and will run from Feb. 22 to Mar. 4 in the Philbin Studio Theater in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.“Native Gardens” tells the story of a Latinx couple and a white couple feuding over the fence marking the boundary between their backyards and explores a variety of current social and political issues.“The barrier exists between two backyards as opposed to between two nations, but the polarities between the two couples are set up in virtually every way that’s possible,” Dreyer said. “There are flashpoints throughout, and they eventually culminate into a border war.”

Chocolate fountains are for amateurs; cheese is where it’s at. You’ll learn this soon enough, because Kirk Lynn’s new ‘30s inspired, fromage-fountain-spewing show Stop Hitting Yourself, begins performances January 15. Directed by Shawn Sides, the Lincoln Center Theater presentation has an opening night set for January 27 at the Claire Tow Theater. Part Pygmalion, part self-help lexicon, part ‘30s musical spectacle, Stop Hitting Yourself digs deep into the contemporary conservative dilemma—how to honor steely individualism without disavowing the virtue of charity—all while tap-dancing around a queso fountain. In Stop Hitting Yourself, a Socialite discovers a Wildman in the forest and tries to improve him. View Comments Stop Hitting Yourself The cast, including Thomas Graves, Heather Hanna, Joey Hood, Hannah Kenah, Lana Lesley, E. Jason Liebrecht and Paul Soileau, are all members of the ensemble-based theater collective Rude Mechs, hailing from Austin, TX. The company has been creating original theater productions since 1995.
