In an increasingly interdependent world, internationalization has become a key feature of higher education institutions (HEIs) and within the overall context of higher education policies (accreditation process, intra-institutions cooperation, etc.)

The mission of the International Relations (IR) at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) is to contribute actively to the internationalization process of the University. We will achieve this mission through closely adhering to the University Identity, Mission, and Values and by collaborating with our University leadership and community.

The following four Objectives will inspire and guide our international initiatives and activities:
Together we will succeed, and together we will build a “learning society”, truly inspired by our Values.


Promote our University Internationally

  • Initiating, maintaining, and updating international relations;
  • Representing the University within the international community;
  • Acting as a communication team between external institutions and the whole University community
The above are our three main sub-priorities to promote our University.

Prepare our Students for Global Leadership Skills

  • Adaptability across cultures;
  • Ability to establish businesses in new markets;
  • Global strategic thinking

The above are just some of the many necessary global leadership skills and will serve to instruct our students and enrich their experience in a globalizing job market.

Develop and Coordinate the Institutional External Relations

The above are our priorities to develop external relationships and partnerships around the world.

Be the “Organizational Memory” for International Relations

  • University-to-University agreements;
  • University-to-External Organizations agreements;
  • Faculty-to-Faculty agreements

The above are some examples of eventual written Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs). Our natural reflex is to keep a record of all the international activities “refers to the collective ability to store and retrieve knowledge and information”.
