SSND at United Nations

Global Vision in Action

Henrita Frost, SSND, was a member of the General Council who was instrumental in implementing the General Chapter decision to seek accreditation as a Non-Governmental Organization of the United Nations. Her constancy and fidelity were helpful to the first representative chosen to carry out her responsibilities, Ethel Howley, SSND. Reflect with her on the experience of nine years at the United Nations.

The current representative to the United Nations is Ann Scholz, SSND. See how she shares her hopes for SSND ministry at the UN through the General Chapter of 2002.

S. Ann seeks to bring the goals and values of the School Sisters of Notre Dame to bear on the deliberations and decisions of UN member states. In cooperation with other Non-Governmental Organizations she focuses on the needs and concerns of those members of the global community who are too often neglected---women, children, (especially the Girl-Child) and those living in poverty.   The School Sisters of Notre Dame are associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information and have Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council.  To understand the scope of SSND ministry at the UN, read her quadrennial report.

A former secondary social studies teacher, Sister Ann earned her MA and PhD in International Education from the American University in Washington , DC .  She served as an Associate Professor of Education and Director of Study Abroad at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland from 1991-2002 and was instrumental in expanding opportunities for students and faculty to do academic work abroad.
