Dual Career Resources

The University of Dayton is committed to the recruitment, hiring and promotion of outstanding, diverse faculty and staff who value its mission and share its commitment to academic excellence in teaching, research and artistic creativity, the development of the whole person, and leadership and service in the local and global community. 

In support of this commitment, the University is pleased to provide support for spouses of prospective and newly hired faculty.
