"Nurses are the heart of healthcare." - Donna Wilk Cardillo
The cooperative degree plan in nursing establishes a public-private partnership that
unites the resources of one of the finest nursing programs in the country, that of
Texas Woman's University (TWU), with those of one of the country's best liberal arts
colleges, the University of Dallas. Students will earn two degrees, a bachelor of
arts degree in biology from UD and the bachelor of science degree in nursing from
TWU, in an integrated program that can be completed in five years.
The total number of credit hours in the suggested curriculum is 174, with 100 credit
hours taken at UD and 74 credit hours at TWU. Students will get the best of both the
breadth and wisdom of the UD Core curriculum and the experience and technical expertise
of TWU's nursing program, and graduate as liberally educated health care professionals.
The TWU College of Nursing prepares nurses for practice, teaching, management and research. With more than 3,200
nursing students at its Denton, Dallas and Houston campuses, TWU is the states leading
provider of new graduates preparing to become registered nurses.

The Spring 2019 Women in Business Leadership Panel and Networking Event featured Dallas/Fort Worth's top female leaders and executives. Leaders in their fields joined University of Dallas students, faculty and alumni for lunch and discussion. They shared insights and tips for living both halves of their lives: the work/life integration.
On Feb. 25 and 26, seven UD students traveled to Austin with Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Enrollment Michael Probus, BA '12 MBA '15, to advocate for continuing and/or increasing Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG) money.
Mike Kiegerl's youngest daughter, Christine, would have graduated from UD in the Class of 1994, but just before her graduation, she was struck by an impaired truck driver and died instantly. Kiegerl and his wife, Peggy, established the Christine S. Kiegerl Memorial Scholarship in their girl's memory in 1997.
