Campus Ministry and Service
Faithful to our Catholic heritage, the Center embraces people of all faiths and welcomes the richness that religious diversity brings.
Witnessing to the Gospel values of Jesus, the Center for Campus Ministry and Community Service offers opportunities for cultivating the spiritual well-being of the campus community and a commitment to social justice.
By grounding the educational and social experience within a spiritual framework, the Center for Campus Ministry and Community Service fosters these primary values:
- growth in the knowledge and living of one's faith;
- the building of inclusive community
- the development of leadership and service in today's world
- service to others in order to form a just society.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to take advantage of our prayer spaces on campus.

Community service is a vital part of campus ministry, as students volunteer on the local-urban, national and international scene.
Sexual Assault Prevention Education
The office of campus ministry and service received a grant from the Kristen Mitchell Foundation to promote safe dating and healthy relationships on campus.
With the funds provided, a poster series portraying the many faces of Notre Dame of Maryland University was created. Each participant finished the sentence “Violence Against Women…..”. Posters were also created depicting statistics about dating violence.
In addition to the poster series, a safety and self-defense workshop will be held to promote owing your space, your voice and your surroundings.
A Take Back the Night rally will will feature speakers from TurnAround, Inc, a Baltimore City sexual assault and domestic violence agency, as well as poems, open mic and a safe walk through campus at night.
Alternative Spring Break
Each year, some Notre Dame students choose to spend their spring break serving impoverished communities in the United States. In past years, students have volunteered to build houses in those communities; they return to campus with a sense of accomplishment and new perspectives.
