On behalf of the professors at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU), it is my pleasure to welcome you to our university website. At NDU, we offer Bachelor’s and Master’s level programs, which have been carefully designed to provide quality education in a flexible and supportive learning environment, ensuring that you develop both personally and professionally.
The Office of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) is not only dedicated to carrying out all academic activities and making sure that these align with the mission of NDU, but also endeavors to help you achieve success.
All our programs are accredited by the New England Commission for Higher Education (NECHE), previously the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC): the same accreditation held by some of the most prestigious institutions in the world. Many of our programs are also accredited by specific accreditation bodies such as ABET, IAA, ACCA, CILECT and many others. Achieved after more than a decade of collaborative efforts, this accreditation marks our commitment to our students, and our constant push for academic excellence.
The VPAA oversees all seven of NDU’s faculties, along with supporting offices such as: Office of Student Affairs (SAO); Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA); Office of International Relations (OIR); School of Continuing Education (SCE), Libraries; Admissions Office; and Registrar’s Office.
Supported by the Faculty Deans, Assistant Vice-Presidents, Directors, and Administrative staff, the VPAA works closely with the President to ensure our university maintains its high standards in both education and research. We provide leadership for strategic and institutional planning, educational activities, and research initiatives, by maintaining high oversight, coordinating with all academic units, reviewing our educational policies regularly, and guaranteeing that all our courses remain accredited by the most reliable international institutions.
Thank you for your interest in NDU. We look forward to welcoming you as one of our students.
