University of Dallas President Thomas S. Hibbs, Ph.D., BA '82 MA '83, announced the
appointment of David Andrews, Ph.D., BS ’90, former associate dean, longtime assistant professor of mathematics and department
chairman, as interim dean of the university’s Constantin College of Liberal Arts.
It is no surprise that the University of Dallas, chartered by religious women, has had over 50 alumnae who have said “yes” to the call to religious life. In 1952, The Superior of the Western Province of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, Mother Theresa Weber, declared, "We need a Catholic co-educational college in this area!" On May 25, 1955, the Sisters officially received the charter for the University of Dallas. UD's first trustees were all religious women: Mother Theresa Weber, Sister Mildred Manning, Sister Mary Frances Connaughton, Sister Mary Byron, Sister Myrtl Owens and Sister Elizabeth Johnston.
