Faculty fellows at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies are receiving four of nine prestigious annual awards being given to faculty by the University of Notre Dame.  

The recipients were announced May 3 by the Office of the Provost and include Kellogg Director and law professor Paolo Carozza, who will receive the Reinhold Niebuhr Award. The honor 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. Carozza, who is also a concurrent professor of political science, studies the relationships between law, human rights, education, and integral human development. 

Other Kellogg faculty fellows receiving honors are:

Viva Bartkus, the Grenville Clark Award, given to a faculty member or administrator whose voluntary activities advance the cause of peace and human rights. 

Bartkus is an associate professor of management at the Mendoza College of Business who studies effective leadership approaches to solving complex business problems and the social capital of communities that enables collaboration. 

Rev. Daniel G. Groody, CSC, the Rev. William A. Toohey, CSC, Award for Preaching. This is one of two awards established to honor the memory of a Holy Cross priest who served as director of Campus Ministry. The Toohey Award for Preaching is given to a Holy Cross priest who has made significant contributions to Notre Dame, particularly as a homilist. 

Groody is an associate professor of theology and global affairs, director of the Kellogg Global Leadership Program, and a Notre Dame Fellow and Trustee. His work addresses migration and refugee issues. 

Marisel C. Moreno, the Rev. William A Toohey, CSC, Award for Social Justice, given to a faculty member who has dedicated himself or herself to teaching and research that emphasize the social justice dimension of the Gospel in an exemplary way.  

Moreno is an associate professor of Latino/a literature in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures whose work examines the literary and cultural production of Afro-Latinos and the so-called “other” Latinos – Salvadorans, Guatemalans, and Peruvians. 

The awards will be presented at the President’s Dinner for faculty on May 21.
