Faith and Identity

We read the signs of the times.

The University of Dayton's mission as a Catholic, Marianist university sets us apart from others in higher education.
We are deeply committed to the common good. We educate for service, justice and peace. We readily adapt and change with the times.

We build communities of faith and educate in what we call a "family spirit." We provide an integral, high-quality education on a campus that's known for its hospitality and inclusiveness.

Like our Marianist founders, the University of Dayton reads the signs of the times and acts. Today, we are building upon the University's strong foundation with pragmatism, perseverance and deep faith.
