The Cor Fund is the lifeblood of the University of Dallas. Primarily, the Cor Fund supports the education of our students, 96 percent of whom receive scholarships or financial aid from the university in order to attend. The Cor Fund also supports faculty research and development so that UD can continue to attract and retain the best professors, who are top experts and practitioners in their fields. In addition, the Cor Fund provides programming and services to enhance student well-being and success. Your support for the Cor Fund makes everything we do at UD possible: you allow us to keep the lights on both figuratively and literally. You support the students who come here on scholarship, the research done by our faculty, the speakers providing intellectual enrichment and the recreational activities to nourish the body as well as the soul. We couldn’t do what we do, or be who we are, without you.
