On behalf of Notre Dame College and the Division of Student Affairs, I am pleased to introduce the 2012-2013 Student Handbook. This handbook is a valuable resource which contains information about the College, its activities, people, and places. The handbook also includes the policies and procedures which guide our actions as a college community toward personal, professional, and global responsibility.
At Notre Dame College we believe education is about more than just earning a degree. Beyond our desire for students to develop intellectually, we are concerned with the overall physical, emotional and spiritual growth of the individual. The Division of Student Affairs offers a full complement of support services to help students succeed personally and professionally, from our Career Services Center and Campus Ministry to the Dwyer Learning Center and Residence Life Office.
In order to be a successful student at Notre Dame College it is essential that you seize the opportunities that are presented to you for intellectual and personal growth. This is applicable to all areas of academic and college life, including the classroom, your co-op or internship, student organizations, activities, opportunities for spiritual growth, athletics, and more. As the Division of Student Affairs, we will support you in these endeavors and challenge you to be transformed by your educational experience.
Please note that all students are responsible for reading and knowing the policies and regulations in this handbook. This handbook will be a helpful guide throughout your time at Notre Dame College. We encourage you to consult it regularly and use it wisely.
Brian J. Emerson,
Dean of Student Affairs
