I would like to know how life at Notre Dame is for LGBT students, allies, and Non-Christians.
Thank you for asking. Regarding LGBT students and allies, last year the university published, “Beloved Friends and Allies: A Pastoral Plan for the Support and Holistic Development of GLBTQ and Heterosexual Students at the University of Notre Dame” As a result of this plan, a new undergrad student organization has been formed, PrismND, and a new Assistant Director of LGBTQ initiatives named. I encourage you to be in touch with Ms. Doyle with any further specific questions you may have.
Regarding Non-Christians, approximately 29% of ND graduate students are non-Christian. And according to a recent survey of Graduate Student Life their levels of satisfaction with overall academic experience, sense of community, and quality of life do not differ significantly from that of Christian graduate students.
