  Letter from the President


Dear Reader,

I am pleased to present the inaugural issue of Universitas, the magazine of Notre Dame of Maryland University. Universitas is a Latin word with several meanings—the whole, the total, the sum of all things, the community, the world, the universe—all of which have obvious significance to us. The name reflects our transformation from college to university as well as our reach outward to our community and the world.

President

It also fits nicely with a meme that’s captured everybody’s imagination on campus: We, the people of Notre Dame, are fearless and faithful. We hold dear our cherished traditions while confidently moving forward to embrace challenges and opportunities the future presents us.

This is especially true as we look forward to the imminent announcement of the 14th president of the University. It has been my privilege this past year to accompany Notre Dame of Maryland University on this journey.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading about it in these pages.

Sincerely,
Joan Develin Coley, Ph.D.
President
