Twenty-first Century Educational Principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame
God’s distinctive call and care for each human person is at the heart of the educational ministry of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Today our Sisters and thousands of collaborators globally share an educational vision:
Impelled by Jesus Christ and his mission and our rich educational heritage, we provide a Catholic environment of educational excellence for the transformation of individuals and society.
We form persons who are skilled and committed to journey together in hope as witnesses and catalysts for the responsible care of all God’s creation and for justice and peace, especially for those on the margins of society.
SND educational principles guide our personal outreach within a great variety of ministries, our interactions with colleagues and those we serve, and the educational institutions which we sponsor.
- The centrality of a good and provident God
- The human dignity of each person as an image of God
- The Notre Dame educator as Gospel witness
- An integrated education for transformation
