The Irving Community Television Network recently featured UD and President Thomas W. Keefe. President Keefe talked about everything from the changes he’s facilitated since his arrival in 2010 to the quality of the education and future plans for the university. He shared a few secrets of his trade and what he believes makes this university so special to its students and to the city of Irving.
