This past 2017-18 school year, the University of Dallas began an exchange program with the Catholic University of Avila (Universidad Católica de Ávila, or UCAV) in Spain, sponsored by the European Union's Erasmus program. In August 2017, UD hosted a faculty and a staff member from UCAV here in Irving; in May and July 2018, faculty and staff from UD visited Avila, a medieval fortress city with numerous churches and historical associations with St. Theresa.
The University of Dallas Board of Trustees is pleased to share several updates regarding the search for a new university president. Richard Husseini, BS '88, current vice chair of the board and executive committee member, will chair the search committee for a new university president. This committee represents a cross section of the UD community, including trustees, faculty, an academic dean, a National Alumni Board representative, a member with senior staff experience, and the current student government president.
Nearly a year ago, when Hurricane Harvey hit, Houston, Beaumont and surrounding areas endured a natural disaster of unforeseen proportions. The process of rebuilding has been long and arduous, and this past spring, UD's Alternative Spring Break program took students down to Beaumont to join in the efforts through Operation Blessing, the division of Catholic Mission Trips in charge of Hurricane Harvey relief.
