Mark McNabola to Serve as Mentor in Notre Dame's President's Circle Mentorship Program

Well-known Chicago trial attorney Mark McNabola is part of the prestigious Notre Dame President's Circle Mentorship Program.

Started in 2013, the President’s Circle Mentorship Program connects members of the President’s Circle with current Notre Dame students who are participating in a summer internship. 

"It's an honor to serve in this program and help guide a current Notre Dame student," McNabola said. "I'm excited to be part of the Circle Mentorship Program, and we are glad our firm can help."

Through the program, mentors serve as a resource for students as they enter the workforce for the first time, and many retain a relationship with their mentee long after the program’s completion.  

"Mark's support empowers our students to engage in an internship experience they might otherwise not have been able to pursue,"said Notre Dame's Associate Vice President for Development, Drew Buscareno. "This opportunity to step into the area of the world that interests them serves as a profound and immersive life experience. On top of the tremendous support Mark has already given to Notre Dame, we are especially appreciative for his willingness to devote time and energy to the mentorship program by sharing his experience, knowledge, and wisdom from such a wide range of life and work experiences."

In total, the program has matched more than 400 students with a mentor since its inception. The program offers an invaluable opportunity for students to get career, and broader life, advice from people who are committed and genuinely interesting in helping. 

"Mark's willingness to serve in this capacity is hugely appreciated," said Suzanne DeGuilio, Associate Director for the President’s Circle Mentorship Program. "As a mentor, Mark works closely with his student mentee who is participating in an internship during the summer. Mark's experience and advice is incredibly valuable as his student navigates the workforce for the first time."
