Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

A longstanding treasure of NDA has been its diverse community that offers a variety of experiences to educate the whole person. We believe a diverse student body, faculty, and administrative team offers a wide range of perspectives that fuel creative and innovative thinking, nurture compassion, and provide varied skills and backgrounds which enrich the entire community. The dignity and intrinsic worth of every human being anchors our Catholic mission and philosophy of education. 

We believe that through respectful listening and a recognition of the presence of God in each person, the walls that separate us dissolve, and a welcoming environment that builds unity and community emerges. Our diversity, equity, and inclusion work is an extension and application of this key value. We are committed to providing curriculum, programs, opportunities, and professional education in response to the needs of our time and our community. By remaining true to our Catholic heritage and faith, and to the charism and principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame, our community stands firmly rooted in our commitment to social justice and in the work that needs to be done.
