Areas of Interest

Victoria Goodrich joined the Notre Dame faculty in 2011 and spent 7 years as Director of the First-Year Engineering Program, where she also researched how students form engineering identity and select engineering majors. She now directs the undergraduate laboratory courses for junior and senior chemical engineers while still teaching in the first year curriculum. Her teaching focuses on educational research efforts on how chemical engineering students translate learning goals from previous classes to more practically applied laboratory classes.

She serves as the advisor to Notre Dame’s chapter of the Society of Women Engineers and is the faculty lead for the Notre Dame site of GE Girls, a summer STEM camp for middle school girls attending South Bend Community Schools.

Professor Goodrich has received the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching (2019-2020), Thomas P. Madden Award (2015-2016), Women in Engineering Impact Award (2016), and the SAO Club Advisor of the Year (2019-2020).
