Education For the Mind and Heart

    A University of Dayton education is much more than a series of classes. We've created an environment where students, professors and Marianists all have the opportunity to live and learn from each other. We are a community that produces excellence by providing support.

They adapt to different situations wherever their careers take them in our rapidly changing world.
