Elite Across The Board

Transforming campus — and the world.

Being bold and transformative means taking action. And at the University of Dayton, we don't just talk about ways to improve the world; we do it. A UD education transforms students from people who know and understand what the world needs into people who are active participants in shaping it. Whether it’s establishing an institute in China, working with Emerson Climate Technologies or GE Aviation, or exposing the need for human rights discussion, we're always engaging and changing the world around us.
