A leading Catholic research university, Notre Dame stands among the nation’s top 20 universities in terms of both academics and endowment. The university is organized into four undergraduate colleges—arts and letters, science, engineering, and business—the Graduate School, the Law School, and the School of Architecture. The combination of groundbreaking research and a long tradition of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education has attracted world-class teachers and scholars to the university’s 729- member teaching-and-research faculty. The total student population of about 10,700 men and women is drawn from all 50 states and some 88 foreign countries and includes 1,500 graduate students and 1,150 professional students. Substantial new investments in a wide range of academic programs, institutes, centers, and major facilities have marked the past several years at Notre Dame. Founded in 1842 by a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Notre Dame is located north of the city of South Bend, Indiana, and about 90 miles southeast of Chicago. Its 1,250-acre-campus contains two lakes and 104 buildings with an insured replacement value of more than $875 million. The university’s Main Building with its famed Golden Dome is among the most widely known university landmarks in the world.
