"It is time for parents to teach young people early on
that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength."
- Maya Angelou
Our Commitment to Diversity: As one of the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame de Namur learning community, we at the Academy of Notre Dame honor the gift of diversity. We recognize, honor, and celebrate all aspects of our dynamic community members' identities. As part of our commitment to preparing young women "with hearts as big as the world" for global citizenship, we educate for both scholastic achievement and social consciousness. We dedicate ourselves to sustaining a community that is transparent, socially just, and richly diverse and inclusive. The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion serves as both a resource and system of support for students, faculty, staff and administration.
"Little children, let us love not in word or speech
but in truth and action."
1 John 3:18, NRSV
