An education at the University of Dayton is a valuable investment — and not simply because of our high-quality academic programs and reputation as a top-tier Catholic research university. Students are our top priority, and we want them to achieve success in their careers and in life. In keeping with our Catholic, Marianist identity, we educate the whole person: mind, body and spirit. We value collaboration, prize differences and treasure the gifts of all. Here, community is a way of life — our shared vision.
