All communities operate with a shared commitment to core values. Guided by the School Sisters of Notre Dame and committed to our long standing mission, Notre Dame of Maryland University strives to build inclusive communities, engage in service to others and to promote social responsibility.
Being part of the NDMU community is a privilege and therefore brings with it the obligation to conduct oneself in ways that promote these goals and build up the community and the obligation to refrain from activity inconsistent with our shared goals and commitments.
Each community member is expected to make choices that preserve a safe and secure environment in which all individuals are able to pursue their academic endeavors, practice responsible citizenship, respect the rights of others, and be accountable for their actions and the actions of their guests.
The CARE (Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation) Network is a multi-disciplinary body of stakeholders from across the University which receives referrals pertaining concerning issues, collects additional information, and then identifies and enacts appropriate strategies for addressing the situation. The CARE Network addresses both early intervention cases as well as threat assessment.
The CARE Network at NDMU is comprised of two functional groups, the Students of Concern Committee and the Behavioral Intervention Team.
