Moreau Five Pillars Badge
Award Description: The Moreau Five Pillars Badge acknowledges an early and intentional commitment to deep integrative learning which is anchored in values consonant with the highest goals and aspirations of the University of Notre Dame. Badge earners create new eportfolio text and media which demonstrates how their broad Notre Dame experiences, discoveries, and values, the very “art of completeness” about which Moreau writes, are rooted in the five pillars of mind, heart, zeal, family and hope. First year students who earn this badge have gone above and beyond course requirements to show progress towards meeting Notre Dame Undergraduate Learning Outcomes A and D: they incorporate Catholic intellectual tradition in the communication of self-knowledge as they articulate their educational and life goals.
- Students are nominated by their Moreau First Year Experience instructor as being in the top 15% of their class, based on required integrative assignments.
- Nominated students are contacted with instructions for a new portfolio assignment that centers on a commitment to integrate the ideals of the Five Pillars in learning and student experience.
- Submitted portfolio assignments are evaluated using the judging criteria below.

- Thoughtfully answers the provided prompt in a new integrative reflection which contains both text and media
- Displays creativity in portfolio design and effective use of media
- Reaches the Milestone level of the AAC&U Integrative Learning Value Rubric
