NMC was created by the Sisters of Notre Dame to ensure accountability for the teachings of the Catholic Church and for fidelity to the charism, mission, and educational vision and principles of the SND congregation. NMC is represented by a Board of Directors whose membership includes representation from all four regions. Board Members serve as liaisons to the sponsored ministries and collaborate with NSNO to maintain and spread the charism and spirit of SND.
