The following Kellogg faculty fellows have been promoted:

Professor of Law Paolo Carozza has been named the recipient of Notre Dame’s prestigious Faculty Award, which annually singles out a faculty member who, in the opinion of his or her colleagues, has contributed outstanding service to the University of Notre Dame, such as through leadership activities, mentoring faculty colleagues, or exemplary dedication to students. In the citation, Carozza is described as “among the world’s most accomplished and influential human rights lawyers,” stating that, “as a scholar, advocate, judge, and academic leader, he has worked to recognize the equal dignity of every person and to promote human flourishing through the rule of law.”

Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Economics William Evans, who is the founding director of Notre Dame’s Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO,) has been named the recipient of the 2023 Research Achievement Award. This award is given annually to honor a distinguished faculty member who has made significant contributions to scholarship in his or her discipline and to the research and graduate education goals of the University. The citation notes that Evans “has built an exceptional legacy of impact and influence,” stating further that his significant contributions to the field of economics include advancing the “understanding of a wide range of issues central to our everyday lives, including educational attainment, improved labor market outcomes, reduced health disparities, and the impact of policy.”

Professor of Film, Television, and Theatre Anton Juan has been named the recipient of the Reinhold Niebuhr Award, which is given annually to a faculty member or administrator whose body of academic work and life promote or exemplify the area of social justice in modern life. The citation states, “Juan’s sustained commitment as a creative playwright, theater director, and filmmaker is marked by a passionate belief that art is a means to challenge inequality and advocate for social justice.” It continues, “His work speaks with, and on behalf of, marginalized individuals and communities, those in need, and spaces that are often ignored.”
