Maggie Barrett

Maggie Barrett, an Economics and Global Affairs double major from South Bend, Indiana, joins the undergraduate LEO team this summer as a Research Operations intern. 

We asked Maggie why she chose to work for LEO. 

“LEO's mission embodies Notre Dame's desire to be a force for good in the world,” she said. “I'm so excited to participate in research that helps organizations more effectively serve their communities and can inform stronger and more equitable public policy in the fight against poverty.”

During the school year, Maggie enjoys being involved with the Center for Social Concerns and loves to play every interhall sport she can for her dorm, Cavanaugh. Besides the sports teams, one of the perks of being in Cavanaugh for Maggie is her close proximity to LaFortune Student Center, where she can often be found.

When we asked Maggie about her favorite place on campus, she told us “My favorite spot on campus is without a doubt the Huddle Mart in LaFortune Student Center. There's just nowhere else like it on campus.”
