"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 university mourns the passing of Professor Emeritus of Chemistry Jack Towne, Ph.D. (April 23, 1927 - July 8, 2019), who passed away in his Irving home at age 92. He had a long, celebrated career in education, culminating in his roles at UD.
July 1 marked an era of new beginnings at the University of Dallas as Thomas S. Hibbs, Ph.D., BA '82 MA '83, stepped into the limelight as the university’s ninth and first alumnus president. And his early morning arrival on UD’s Irving campus denoted a full-circle homecoming for the former Holy Trinity seminarian.
On July 9, President Thomas S. Hibbs, Ph.D., BA '82 MA '83, along with Alex and Martha Galbraith, parents of alumna Alison Galbraith, BA '12, signed the C.W. Eaker Scholarship Fund for Chemistry/Biochemistry at UD. The endowed scholarship is the first to be received by Hibbs since his presidency began on July 1; it honors longtime and much-loved chemistry professor C.W. Eaker, Ph.D., who served UD with distinction for over 40 years, first as a faculty member, then as dean of Constantin College and finally as provost of the university.
