Notre Dame College Athletic Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Notre Dame College Athletic Hall Of Fame is to recognize, honor and perpetuate the memory of those individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Notre Dame athletics and have helped bring excellence to the College and its intercollegiate athletic programs.

In 2013, the College Department of Athletics and Athletic External Relations Board members endorsed the establishment of the Notre Dame Athletic Hall of Fame and the director of athletics appointed a committee to select nominees for charter membership in the College Athletic Hall Of Fame.

The first two classes of honorees were inducted in 2014 and 2015.​



The committee selects inductees based on the NCAA Division II philosophy of "Life in the Balance," which emphasizes "a comprehensive program of learning and development in a personal setting." Because of our adherence to these values, athletics at Notre Dame are an integral part of a unified academic and student life experience. As espoused in our Athletics Philosophy Statement, at Notre Dame we work with our student-athletes to help them become competent students, responsible campus citizens and athletes who can compete.



To be inducted into the Notre Dame Athletic Hall Of Fame, former student-athletes must have participated in at least two full seasons of intercollegiate competition, have been in good academic standing, have graduated from the College, and have been a truly distinguished performer in his/her sport. In addition to athletes, any person who has made a significant contribution to the Notre Dame athletic program may be nominated for induction.
