WE EXPAND OUR IMAGINATION OF HUMAN POSSIBILITY.

Welcome to the University of Dayton. We are a top-tier Catholic research university guided since 1850 by a compelling mission in the Marianist educational tradition.

The University of Dayton's faculty are teacher-scholars committed to transformative education that prepares students for a lifetime of learning, leadership and service. Our faculty also are influential researchers and creative artists who work across departmental boundaries to create and apply new knowledge and expand our imagination of human possibility.

Inspired by the Marianist vision of education and scholarship that builds community among diverse people, the University of Dayton supports a rich culture of collaboration among students, faculty, staff and partners locally, across the country and around the world.

On our highly residential campus, students live and learn in community. And it's our commitment to community that generates high-impact scholarship that addresses human needs — from creating a sustainable future to protecting human rights globally.

I invite you to explore the University of Dayton's vibrant community.

Sincerely,

Paul H. Benson, Ph.D.
Interim Provost
