Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Inclusive Excellence

The University of Dayton’s commitment to Inclusive Excellence is rooted in the Catholic and Marianist conviction that every person has innate dignity because all people are made in the image and likeness of God. Social or cultural discrimination is incompatible with God’s design. Efforts to create access and lead everyone to excellence through equity and inclusion emanate from the University of Dayton’s call to solidarity and the common good.


A Legacy of Excellence

Mona Guerrier Fallen ’91 was a first-generation college student at UD whose remarkable journey led her to become an Assistant United States Attorney in Dayton, serving for over 13 years. After Mona passed away in 2013, her husband, Destry Fallen, established the Mona Guerrier Fallen Endowed Scholarship for the Multi-Ethnic Education and Engagement Center to honor her commitment to educational opportunities for all and her optimistic and enthusiastic approach to life.
