Founders Week 2017

The University of Notre Dame Australia invites you to join us in celebrating Founders Week for 2017.

An initiative that began during the University's 25th anniversary in 2014, Founders Week salutes all members of our community who turned the dream of Australia's first Catholic university into reality and one of the highest rated universities in the nation.

Each year, we recognise the achievement and successes of our students, staff, alumni, community and philanthropic supporters through a series of events, culminating with Open Day on Sunday 20 August.

We thank you for your support and hope you will be able to join us.
