Academy of Notre Dame de Namur: Inspiring Young Women Since 1956

Alumnae Association

Members of the Alumnae Association gather for a service project in the Mansion.


The Alumnae Association supports and advances the interests of Notre Dame by fostering a sense of community among its graduates, enhancing their connection to the Academy and promoting their mind, body, and spiritual growth. Alumnae Association meetings are open to all Alumnae and we encourage you to have an active role in the community.

The Executive Board would be pleased to hear your ideas regarding the Association’s programming and its role in the lives of Notre Dame women.

Ideally, each class has representation at Alumnae Association meetings, which occur three times per calendar year: fall, winter, and spring. Through attendance at these meetings, you can help steer the general course of alumnae involvement at Notre Dame. We encourage you to join us at the meetings!
