SWD provides programs that are essential to the life and understanding of culture here at the University of Notre Dame. Encouraged by the Office of the President, Student Affairs, and our Director of Athletics, these programs ensure that Notre Dame’s student-athletes develop into strong, mature, balanced, and caring individuals.

First year orientation

This program is designed to give our incoming student-athletes and parents an overview of what it means to be a student-athlete at Notre Dame within their first week of time on campus. 

Team Workshops

SWD staff is available to lead workshops tailored to specific team needs.  Past workshops have focused on understanding personality tendencies, improving communication, and teamwork.
