They left your home to come here, the University of Dallas, to delve into new experiences and, in many ways, acquaint themselves with a whole new world. Through your children, you too became forever a part of the UD community, though you might not always have known how to remain actively engaged. Now, the Parent Ambassadors invite you to join them in proudly supporting and promoting our university.

As a UD Parent Ambassador you will join a community of grateful parents of current students and alumni who wish to promote, support and engage with the University of Dallas.

As a Parent Ambassador, you will receive:

  • A welcome packet with your own UD library card.
  • Opportunities to engage with UD faculty, staff and leaders.
  • Community and connection with other grateful UD parents

As grateful alumni of the Braniff Graduate School, we’re thrilled that our daughters Madeleine and Isabel both have chosen to attend UD for their undergraduate degrees. We know the kind of liberal arts education that UD provides, and we know that it prepares students for success in a myriad of fields like medicine, business, science and technology. UD has changed the life of our family. We hope you will join us as Parent Ambassadors to support one another and our children in the intellectual and spiritual endeavor that is UD.
