Rector

Sara Thoms

Sara Thoms

Sara Thoms completed her Master of Divinity degree at Notre Dame in 2018 and has worked in Residential Life in various capacities for three years. Her passion for the formation of women led her to serve as an Assistant Rector during graduate school, teach at an all-girls Catholic high school in Phoenix, and return to Notre Dame as a Rector in the fall of 2020. Sara has been involved in various volunteer positions and ministry opportunities including new student orientation, Special Olympics, theater productions, faith formation groups, service immersion experiences, RCIA, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and directing retreats at the high school and college level. You can find Sara curled up with a good book and cup of tea, doing yoga, sending snail mail, or going for walks around campus with her pup, Lady, who is affectionately named after Our Lady's University.
 
"There is no other collegiate residential life experience like that of Notre Dame. Here, you're brought into a family that seeks to make every member feel known and loved. I look forward to sharing life with the women and men of Notre Dame in our residence halls and across campus, drawing out their gifts to build up the Notre Dame family into people called to a higher purpose -- serving God and others."
