The University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA) is a private Roman Catholic university established in 1989 in the Western Australian port city of Fremantle, . While the University of Notre Dame Australia has "strong collegial links" with the American University of Notre Dame located in South Bend, Indiana, they are separate institutions. A large number of students from the American Notre Dame participate in a study abroad program at the Fremantle campus.

The University has campuses in Fremantle, Western Australia, Broome, Western Australia and Sydney, New South Wales.

The Fremantle and Broome campuses form Western Australia's smallest university, with just over 7000 students enrolled. In percentage growth terms, however, it is one of Australia's fastest growing universities, with an increase in student load of more than 13% in 2008 compared with 2007.

In 2006, Notre Dame Australia established its first campus in Sydney in the suburb of Chippendale close to the CBD. The small campus occupies part of the complex of St Benedict's Church, with which it retains close ties. There are over 2200 students enrolled in Arts, Business, Law and Nursing courses.In 2008 the first cohort of students commenced at the newly-built medical school at the Darlinghurst Campus. The clinical schools for the Darlinghurst campus include St Vincent's Hospital, which is immediately across the road.

In line with the Commonwealth Government's priorities for higher education, in 2009 Notre Dame signed an interim agreement for Mission based compacts with the Commonwealth, outlining its goals as well as its vision for a unique place in Australian higher education.

$5000 CONVENTION AWARDS AGAIN OPEN TO UNIVERSITY STAFF Two $5000 professional development awards are again being offered to the five West Australian University staff by the Perth Convention Bureau for 2011. The professional development awards are part of a $45000 program which involves Perth's five metropolitan universities -- Murdoch University, the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University and The University of Notre Dame Australia. The Bureau has been running a scholarship and awards program since 1999. During this time it has been responsible for generating meeting business worth more than $50 million to the Western Australian economy. Bureau Managing Director Christine McLean said the decision two years ago to widen its scholarship and awards program to specifically embrace the five metropolitan universities had been a "highly successful initiative" that had generated considerable interest and support from the tertiary institutions. "The response has been extremely encouraging and we're delighted to be playing a role in the professional development of both academic and professional staff involved with each of the universities," she added. "By nurturing local talent and leveraging the State's areas of excellence we have been able to unearth potential local conference hosts and valuable bidding opportunities. The academic community in particular represents an active and influential group of local hosts."

Watch how Caritas Australia use sport to bring young people together in the Solomon Islands and address underlying issues in the Aiuki community. As kids played games they could think about the values associated with each of the themes and the community formation objectives. The wrist band and soccer ball activities were developed around Caritas Australias community formation programs. The four themes of the program - leadership, peace building, gender equity and environment - are underpinned by the Catholic Social Teachings.
