Student Handbook

Dear University of Dayton Student,

One of the most distinct characteristics about the University of Dayton is our strong sense of “community.”  However, “community” is more than just a word – it is our shared vision and our shared commitment. Our campus environment is designed for students to develop intellectually, morally, spiritually, culturally, and socially.

The privilege of being a member of the UD community comes with significant responsibility, and it is imperative that our students understand the University’s expectations and the University’s commitments to our students.

Students are encouraged to actively engage in our learning and living communities both in and out of the classroom, and to intentionally seek opportunities that respectfully deepen their understanding of diverse perspectives and experiences. We hope that you will discern your values, develop your faith, and positively transform our campus and greater Dayton communities through our countless involvement and leadership opportunities.

We are here to support you in this journey.

Christine H. Schramm                                                                                          Associate Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students
