IT'S MORE THAN A PHILOSOPHY.
IT'S OUR TRADITION.

The Catholic intellectual tradition calls for crossing boundaries.

We believe theology and philosophy are central to a University of Dayton education. We examine the relationship between faith and reason. We integrate knowledge. We strive for truth. We link our work in the classroom to our lives in the world. We develop critical minds and compassionate hearts.

While the Catholic intellectual tradition can be found in a course devoted to religion and culture or among the stacks in the Marian Library, it's really embedded throughout the curriculum.

For us, it's more than a philosophy. It's our tradition.
