Notre Dame of Maryland University
For more than 100 years Notre Dame of Maryland University has educated thousands of young women. NDMU offers Maryland's only women's college, as well as several programs for women and men.
The SSND corporate members support the decision from NDMU to become fully co-educational. By expanding its mission, the University is creating new opportunities to educate women and men together to bring their gifts to a world in need.
