Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
A longstanding treasure of NDA has always 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 enriches the entire community. The dignity and intrinsic worth of every human being anchor 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 are 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.
