Undergraduate Overview

Founded in 1842, the University of Notre Dame is the nation’s leading Catholic research university, providing a distinctive voice in higher education that is at once rigorously intellectual, unapologetically moral in orientation, and firmly embracing of a service ethos. Rated among the top 20 of all U.S. institutions of higher learning, Notre Dame ranks second nationally in the percentage of students who study abroad and has seen research funding increase from $87 million to $141.5 million in the past decade. The University is organized into four undergraduate colleges — Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering, and the Mendoza College of Business — the School of Architecture, the Keough School of Global Affairs, the Law School and the Graduate School. It is located adjacent to the city of South Bend, Indiana, in a region with a population of more than 300,000, and is widely known for the beauty of its campus, including the Golden Dome of the Main Building, the world’s most recognized university landmark.

The University of Notre Dame is committed to supporting a culture of research, scholarship, and creative endeavor throughout campus, in order to be a repository for knowledge and a powerful means for doing good in the world.

Research at Notre Dame has paved the way for new discoveries, unlocked knowledge, and improved technologies. Further, Notre Dame has a long history of research. The aerodynamics of glider flight, the transmissions of wireless messages, and the formulae for synthetic rubber were pioneered at the University. Today, the University supports and encourages innovation in numerous core facilities and resources, as well as in a number of key areas of research, including cancer, environmental change, global health, turbomachinery and propulsion, and many more.

Inspired by the University’s Catholic mission, Notre Dame’s world-class faculty and students together are pursuing globally significant, solutions-oriented research as Notre Dame’s research grows in line with President Rev. John I. Jenkins’ vision: “A great Catholic university for the 21st century, one of the preeminent research institutions in the world.”
