Thank you for visiting our ND Day page! The Notre Dame Militia of the Immaculata (NDMI) is the local chapter of the Militia of the Immaculata (MI), a worldwide movement within the Catholic Church founded by Saint Maximilian Kolbe in 1917. The main goal of the NDMI is to promote and enrich devotion to Mary in her identity as the Immaculate Conception while promoting the Catholic identity of the University of Notre Dame. Father Sorin wrote that he "dreamed of building a great university in honor of Our Lady,” and we continue his vision by honoring her and her special relationship to Christ. Please explore our website to learn more about how we hope to contribute to Catholic life and culture here at Notre Dame and beyond!
Identity Project of Notre Dame /
Edith Stein Project
The Identity Project seeks to discuss the true identity of the human person. As the college experience is an intense time of personal formation, the Identity Project hopes to recognize the importance of our choices with respect to our human dignity. Our activities reflect the different aspects of the human person and practically address the challenges that college students experience in light of our human identity. Informed by the Catholic tradition, the Identity Project believes that there are certain fundamental truths about the human person. We look to empower persons to live holistic lives consistent with these truths. The Identity Project seeks to join all those at the University of Notre Dame in the development of our understanding of our human identity and dignity.
