Paving the Path - University of Dallas

The University of Dallas relies on the generous contributions of our community — alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff — to continue providing an education that ennobles and enables our students to impact the world. Your gift is the foundation on which the future is built.

Paving the Path Forward offers the opportunity to have your name permanently engraved on a paver that will be placed on the Alumni and Friends Walkway, a prominent location on campus.

Though not limited to these options, a paver may be purchased to:

  • Commemorate your graduation or Rome semester with your name and class year
  • Celebrate your child’s graduation
  • Recognize a favorite professor or memorialize a classmate.

Pavers come in 12” x 12” and 6” x 12” and are completely tax deductible. The text on the pavers is engraved and painted to ensure that it will endure. They will be installed on the walkway from Lynch Circle off of Northgate Dr. Box# 705 which leads to Haggar University Center and the Mall.

Funds from Paving the Path Forward go toward University of Dallas general scholarships.
