Notre Dame of Maryland University

Transform the world by being the best you.
In 1895, our founders built an institution to educate students who are hungry to make their mark on the world and be a force for positive change. We had to open doors and knock barriers down – and we’ve been knocking them down since. As society has evolved, so has Notre Dame of Maryland University. Today, we’ve broken down another barrier and now welcome men into our unique undergraduate experience. Because the values on which we were founded and that still guide us — excellence, inclusivity, service, and social responsibility — apply equally to all. Notre Dame of Maryland is a comprehensive university that offers bachelor’s degrees, certificates, graduate and professional programs. All programs provide a firm foundation in the arts, the sciences and, most importantly, the deeper question of who you are and what you want to achieve. Because creating a better world starts with creating the best you.
