2022 Impact Report

Boldly Forward

At the new student convocation, I emphasized to the Class of ’26 that, at the University of Dayton, we hold doors open for one another — literally and metaphorically — because we are a community. That spirit is patently evident in the fundraising, volunteer engagement, and community participation that we witnessed this past fiscal year. 

Together, we achieved the second-highest fundraising total in University history while welcoming more volunteers to the table than ever before. I am so proud to be a member of the community leading UD boldly forward, to see so many students excelling who wouldn’t be here but for your generosity, to call UD my home. To the alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who made this all happen, thank you!

With God's blessings,

Eric F. Spina, President
