Education programs at NDMU are built upon a strong foundation in liberal arts, the Catholic intellectual traditions, and social teaching.
"Reflecting on 28 years as a teacher and 12 years as an administrator at the middle level, there was no coursework or professional development that had the same positive impact on my students, staff, parents, and myself as those centered around relationship-building. Educational experiences in social-emotional learning, positive behavior supports, culturally responsive teaching and trauma-informed care go to the heart of why individuals become educators and provide them with research-based skills and strategies to build strong, collaborative relationships within their communities. In return, educators gain a sense of renewed confidence in their abilities to support the social, emotional, and academic development of all their students."
