Through ND Women Connect it’s truly inspiring to see how, even far away from campus, our shared experiences and traditions can be both a spark and a foundation for new and cherished friendships.

ND Women Connect Invites You

by Karen Dehais ‘85, Board Chair

We are excited about the opportunities ahead to gather together again. Wherever you are on your post-graduation journey, here’s a quick look at the ways we invite you to engage with NDWC this year.

ND Women Connect invites you to be a part of the alumnae family in the place you call home.

NDWC groups are active in many communities and you can find the one closest to you here. Activities are tailored to alumnae interests in each area and feature happy hours, book clubs, service projects and more. If there is not a group near you, please reach out to the NDWC Regional Director in your area to see about getting one started.

ND Women Connect invites you to join virtual events with alumnae and friends.

NDWC’s On the Same Page Shared Read will start in September, and it’s easy to join fellow alums in the online discussion of The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah.

And NDWC is now featuring conversations with inspiring women in the Notre Dame family. You can watch interviews with Coach Niele Ivey, Paqui Kelly and ND Police Chief Keri Kei Shibata here. And we’ll announce guests and dates for upcoming live conversations soon.

ND Women Connect invites you to join us in celebrating 50 years of coeducation in 2022!

NDWC’s “In Her Own Words” project is creating an oral history of the earliest years of coeducation that will be gifted to the University Archives. If you were on campus during the 1970s we want to share your story. Email for more information about how you can participate.

And please watch the NDWC newsletter and our Facebook, Instagram (nd_women) and Twitter (@ND_Women) for more details about the 50th anniversary celebration as they unfold.

ND Women Connect invites you to join us on campus for alumnae-centered events.

Whether you are looking forward to your 5th, 45th or some reunion in between, please join us on reunion weekend for Home Again, an event where alumnae socialize, network and explore topics of shared interest.

And if you are seeking connections with the unique spirituality that is Notre Dame, ND Women Connect invites you to join us on retreat next June.

We can all name the women who, during our days on campus, were the people we turned to for advice and support – about achieving our goals and dreams, about what to do when the unexpected happens, and so much more. ND Women Connect can be an extension of that campus family. The NDWC door is wide open, and you are always welcome. We hope you’ll take us up on these invitations soon!
