I saw this sign posted today outside of the Registrar’s office and thought that it offered inspiration and a vision of hope. Sister Julie Billiart founded the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who of course in turn founded our university. She faced many challenges, but throughout her life spoke up for those who were fleeing persecution, ministered to those who were hungry, and created institutions by which education was made accessible to those who would otherwise have been excluded from such opportunities.
The social justice and community engagement mission of NDNU carries on this legacy though our many passionate and determined students who apply innovation,ethical action, intelligence, and compassion to serve others and bring justice to today’s world.
Just imagine what’s next!
