NDMU Together: Keeping NDMU Healthy & Safe

Being a part of the Notre Dame of Maryland University community means we each must take daily actions on and off campus to protect each other and our community. The only way we can be successful is if we all work together to keep our campus safe and healthy. I pledge to take responsibility for my own health, the protection of others and help keep the NDMU community safe from spread of COVID-19 and other infections as identified and instructed by the University.
