Mission and Philosophy
Programs challenge students to strive for intellectual and professional excellence, to build inclusive communities, to engage in service to others, and to promote social responsibility.
The College's values-centered curriculum emphasizes the student's total development: intellectual, professional, social and spiritual. Notre Dame students and faculty members come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing diverse perspectives to the academic community.
Founded and sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSNDs), Notre Dame was established as a four-year college in 1895. The Notre Dame of Maryland University was the first Catholic college for women in the United States to award the four-year baccalaureate degree.
The English Language Institute (ELI), which opened in 1983, offers English as a second language and American culture classes. The Renaissance Institute, a noncredit membership program for students age 50 and older, rounds out the College's educational offerings.
The College's 17,000 graduates are leaders in a full range of professional fields and are important contributors to family and community life throughout the country and the world.
