ETHOS students go virtual

This summer students continue to engage with community organizations both in Dayton and in other states to address community and environmental issues. Twenty ETHOS students are participating in a remote version of the program, creatively finding new ways to "immerse" with fourteen community partners working on challenges ranging from net zero energy use and net zero waste to designing composting facilities, water catchment systems, and STEM educational camps. We are delighted to continue offering opportunities to our University of Dayton engineering students to work for the common good. Check out their latest video here. Contact Kelly Bohrer at for more information.

New undergraduate program to focus on healthcare administration

UD will launch a new healthcare administration program this fall focused on community health, policy and communication, that will deliver the administrative management and leadership skills graduates need to enter the workforce. The undergraduate pathway is a concentration in healthcare administration for students who double major in communication and political science, and includes classes in the department of health and sport science. Read the full announcement here.

Health Center summer hours

Counseling Center tip of the week

Feeling powerless is a common reaction to all the uncertainty in our lives right now. Making a list of what you do and do not have control over can be helpful as a reminder that there are plenty of things we can still control. Pick one or two of these and find a strategy for remembering them.

The Counseling Center staff continues to meet regularly with UD students via Zoom or by phone. Please call 937-229-3141 to set up an appointment. For students living outside of the state of Ohio, services may be limited due to certain state laws. Call to discuss options.
