Visiting Sister Hildie in the bookstore

What an exciting day!

IND, one of our sponsored ministries, had the pleasure of a visit from their SSND international sister-school from Kyoto, Japan on March 8.

The Japanese guests introduced IND students to various aspects of Japanese culture, toured IND, and sat in on several classes (they also took a few minutes to visit the bookstore and meet Sr. Hildie)!

IND says "We love our SSND connections and collaborating with our school-sisters. We hope you enjoyed your visit to IND, the historic jewel of Baltimore! Thank you, ladies. ありがとう"

STEM Programs Soar at IND

Who says girls don’t like STEM, shorthand for science, technology, engineering and math? Can’t prove it at the Institute of Notre Dame, where one‐third of students are enrolled in either biomedical sciences or engineering programs.

STEM is an issue of great importance to our nation. Student proficiency and interest in these subjects have been diminishing where the U.S. once excelled, and women’s and minority group participation are severely underrepresented.
