Note from the Board of Trustees

Let us help students build a better tomorrow” 


Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) is part of a proud tradition going all the way back to 1736, when the Mariamite Maronite Order (OMM) made a pledge to cultivate affordable education throughout Lebanon. Since then, we have come a long way to fulfilling that pledge. Between three different campuses across the country, all providing education accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), and strong financial aid and merit scholarships programs, NDU reaches past geographical and fiscal barriers to provide exceptional education for all its students, and helps them to shape their futures.

This gala dinner is a chance for us, the Board of Trustees, to continue the time-honored goal of the OMM, and to keep enabling NDU to stand as a beacon of education for all, especially during the current economic downturn.

Today I call upon everyone, to support the worthy cause of offering quality education to young men and women who rely on everyone’s generosity. These students have placed their trust in us, let us take their hands and help them build a better tomorrow.
