    School Overview

    The University of Notre Dame is a private Roman Catholic institution of higher learning located in South Bend, Indiana. Founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin, the land was granted to Sorin by the Bishop of Vincennes with the instructions that Sorin must use the land to build a university. Receiving its charter in 1844, the university went on to bestow its first degrees just five years later in 1849. Throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s Notre Dame expanded by building residence halls, a library and a science hall. From the early 1950s to the late 1980s, the university experienced a vast increase in their endowment, research funding as well as annual operating budget. During this time, in the 1960s, Notre Dame, a previously all male university, opened its dorms to women. The first woman graduated from Notre Dame in 1972. Today, the university continues to flourish and expand.
