In 1895, our founders built an institution to educate students who are hungry to make their mark on the world and be a force for positive change. We had to open doors and knock barriers down- and we've been knocking them down ever since. As society has evolved, so has NDMU. Today, we've broken down another barrier and now welcome men into our unique undergraduate experience. Because the values on which we were founded and that still guide us- excellence, inclusivity, service, and social responsibility- apply equally to all.
NDMU is a comprehensive university that offers bachelor's degrees, certificates, graduate and professional programs. All programs provide a firm foundation in the arts, the sciences, and, most importantly, the deeper question of who you are and what you want to achieve.
Because creating a better world starts with creating the best you.
A passion for helping others is in our DNA. Our community shares a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of individuals near and far.
An inclusive community where all voices are welcome, and all perspectives are valued is an integral part of the NDMU experience.
Ours is a campus culture where women and men discover the inspiration, gain the wisdom, and build the confidence to become all that they aspire to be.
Founded on truth and justice, on faith and reason, we continue to press the issues and push for progress — providing a foundational education for all who seek to change their world.
For 125 years, Notre Dame has delivered an opportunity-filled experience for all who seek to better themselves, and in turn, better the world.
