The NDMU strategic plan (2020-2025) is integral to Notre Dame’s ongoing success. The plan is the product of a focused ten-month process to shape a plan to guide the University over the next five years. The proposed plan seeks to advance transformational education, drive institutional growth, expand visibility, enhance a culture of innovation and enrich the School Sisters of Notre Dame charism.
These goals are driven by 3 major themes including:
The office of institutional research serves as an official data analysis source on campus.
The office provides information and analysis services to support planning, decision-making, accreditation, grant applications, student success and retention, and assessment at a variety of organizational levels while maintaining reporting requirements for government agencies and other external organizations.
Assessment of student learning, an important component of our teaching and learning activities, is a process that encourages creative thought and change as we continually look to improve the student experience at Notre Dame.
Guided by a robust and comprehensive process, assessment at NDMU is an on-going activity that constantly engages faculty and staff in the question of how we can continually review, analyze, and achieve our goals.
