About the University of Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame is an independent, national Catholic university located in Notre Dame, Ind., adjacent to the city of South Bend and approximately 90 miles east of Chicago.

The source of the University’s academic strength is its faculty. Notre Dame faculty members have won 36 fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the past nine years, more than for any other university in the nation.

At Notre Dame, education has always been linked to values, among them living in community and volunteering in community service. Residence hall life is both the hallmark of the Notre Dame experience and the wellspring of the University’s rich tradition. A younger tradition, the University’s Center for Social Concerns, serves as a catalyst for student volunteerism. About 80 percent of Notre Dame undergraduate students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.

The University of Notre Dame, which is one of a handful of truly international universities, has a student body of more than 11,500 students drawn from all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries. The Notre Dame alumni network is the most extensive in higher education, with more than 270 clubs, including more than 40 international clubs.
