Photo Request[edit]

I've removed the reqphoto template from this article as a photo has been provided. Gerritius (talk) 14:43, 7 July 2009 (UTC)


seems like an advertisement unsigned.

Could you specify what section/words you're referring to?

---It really does seem to be an advertisement. "Going from strength to strength", "wel known for.." (is it *actually* well known? Not really.)-- The tone of this page needs to be changed to a more neutral tone. Maybe I'll even get around to it sometime. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:13, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Notre Dame Australia Logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Notre Dame Australia Logo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

University of Notre Dame AustraliaThe University of Notre Dame Australia – This is the full legal name of the University as per section 4 of the University of Notre Dame Australia Act 1989 (WA) – NDMCO (talk) 04:58, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Probably needs a full discussion to see how independent reliable sources refer to it. See also WP:THE, just because it's the full legal name is not reason enough to move it. Jenks24 (talk) 08:01, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Close Connection[edit]

Hello, I am employed by Notre Dame and have been reviewing the Wikipedia page as significant parts of it are outdated or unsubstantiated or irrelevant. On 4 September 2015 I started editing the page with minor edits in the info box. I have seen today (7 September 2015) that there is a 'close connection' warning at the top of the article. I am certainly aware that we can't use the Wikipedia page as a marketing tool, but it is important that the information on it is accurate and up-to-date. What is the best way to proceed with this? Would it be okay for me to make edits and then someone can review them for neutrality? Please help! NDMCO (talk) 03:42, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

The general principle is that anyone with a potential conflict of interest (such as yourself with this article) should normally request or propose changes to be made on the talk page instead of doing so themselves. Minor factual edits, such as updating people's names, is normally okay. If you haven't Already then you need to read the Conflict of Interest guidelines at WP:COI.

Requested change to introduction[edit]


The University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA) is an Australian private Catholic university established in 1989 in the Western Australian port city of Fremantle. Although it is a private university, Notre Dame receives significant government funding. While the university claims "strong collegial links"[1] with the American University of Notre Dame located in Notre Dame, Indiana, they are separate institutions.


The University of Notre Dame Australia (Notre Dame) is an Australian private not-for-profit Catholic university with three campuses in Fremantle, Sydney and Broome.


The University is never referred to as UNDA, it is always abbreviated as Notre Dame. I would like to redo the current history section with a proper verifiable and referenced version (I have prepared this but one thing at a time!). I've added the parts about the campuses because I think that is information that belongs in an intro. I have removed the second sentence because it is unverifiable - there is nothing on the Notre Dame website that backs those parts up.
