Lean In With Larry

Larry Westfall, Director Graduate Career Services

Their website says it all - Golden Dome. Golden State. Endless possibility.  Notre Dame California isn’t simply a West Coast office. It's the embodiment of the University’s desire to be an active partner and presence across the state, contributing to and benefiting from the educational, entrepreneurial, and creative cultures that make California unique.
Under the direction of Dr. Pat Flynn, Computer Science & Engineering, our own Kaci Kelly, Talent and Employer Relations Specialist, and a host of alumni networks, Notre Dame California is making good on its promise to connect the University’s faculty and students to the dynamic research and employment opportunities found on the West Coast and build a bridge back to our Indiana campus for Notre Dame alumni and friends who call California home.
If you're considering the West Coast as a possible first destination or summer internship, then look no further than the connections we have at ND California.  To get started:
