Business History
Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) is the only four-year accredited university in San Mateo County. The school was chartered in 1868 as the first college in the state of California authorized to grant the baccalaureate degree to women. The campus moved to Belmont from San Jose in 1923, taking over the estate of William Chapman Ralston. Since then, the university has undergone a number of changes. In 1955, College of Notre Dame began offering its first evening classes, followed by the introduction of teaching credential programs in 1965. Initially a women’s college, the institution became coeducational in 1969. The college expanded its offerings to include master’s degrees in 1972 and added evening undergraduate programs in 1987. The university achieved its status as a Hispanic-Serving Institution in 2009, added online degrees in 2012, and established a new Ph.D. program in art therapy in 2013.

NDNU was the best choice I made

The small class sized and dynamic faculty make this an exciting and challenging University.

Best kept secret on the Penninsula

I live in Belmont and did not realize the great programs for adults that Notre Dame offersfor completing a degree and graduate schools. Great campus, instructors, ability to complete a degree at night and good value for the price. Recommend highly.
