University of Notre Dame
The University of Notre Dame is a private research university inspired by its long-established Catholic ethos to be a powerful force for good in the world.
Father Edward F. Sorin had a dream to establish a great Catholic university in America. In November 1842, his dream became a reality, and the private research university opened its doors. Notre Dame University is unique because it becomes part of the student’s extended family. Once accepted, you’re considered part of the Notre Dame family for the rest of your life.
