Victoria Goodrich


Victoria Goodrich is a teaching professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Notre Dame. She joined the Notre Dame faculty in 2011 and spent seven 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. Her teaching focuses on hands-on experiential learning for students across all four years of the curriculum. Her educational research efforts center on creating inclusive engineering courses and the translation of learning from previous courses 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 College of Engineering's 2022 Outstanding Teacher Award, the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching (2019-2020), the Thomas P.
