WE PREPARE STUDENTS TO LEAD AND SERVE IN A CHANGING WORLD.
Welcome to the University of Dayton! We're a top-tier Catholic, research university with a time-honored philosophy of education.
In the tradition of the Marianist priests and brothers who founded the University of Dayton in 1850, we respond to the signs of the times. We educate students for adaptation and change because we know they will enter a changing world. Our graduates use their education and community-building skills to excel in their professions and make a difference in the lives of others.
Our search for truth is grounded in both faith and reason. We offer a wide range of excellent academic programs delivered by caring and gifted faculty. Our research initiatives stretch the frontiers of the imagination and benefit humanity. Our highly residential campus allows students to learn and live in community.
I invite you to explore what makes the University of Dayton such a special place.
