Dear Reader,

John Rivera

Welcome to our first issue of Universitas! This new publication of Notre Dame of Maryland University will highlight the exciting scholarship, service and campus life that every day make Notre Dame a warm community that educates, enlightens and inspires.

The name Universitas connotes wholeness. We are one University with many elements: colleges, schools and programs, students, faculty, staff and alumnae and alumni. Through our Catholic, liberal arts tradition, we offer a global and comprehensive Notre Dame education that strives to develop the whole person.

The pages of Universitas will reflect that reality. As we commemorate the 180th anniversary of the founding of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, we reflect on the fearless and faithful spirit that has been our legacy from the beginning. We highlight some cutting-edge research that, thanks to collaboration among our biology and pharmacy faculty and students, will help millions of people in the developing world who suffer from malaria. And we celebrate Notre Dame’s continuing literary tradition with news of some major recent and upcoming faculty publications.

Finally, each issue will feature a guest columnist in a section called “The Last Word.” This month includes a reflection by Joshua Parker, a Baltimore County teacher and NDMU alum who was named Maryland’s Teacher of the Year in 2012. He writes from a first-person perspective, as a teacher and a father, on how we might improve outcomes for black males in our education system.

It is possible you may be surprised by Notre Dame’s many accomplishments. But there is no doubt you will be proud of them.

Sincerely,
John Rivera
Director of University Communications
