UD is helping Katherine stoke her academic passions and pursue beauty, truth and goodness. This is becoming a rare experience in academia. We are delighted to strengthen our ties with UD and support the university as Parent Ambassadors.

Are you grateful your child chose to attend UD? If so, you’re invited to join an enthusiastic group of fellow UD parents: Parent Ambassadors are parents of current students and alumni who support the mission of the University of Dallas by giving financially, promoting enthusiastically and engaging in the life of the university as our availability and interests allow.

Parent Ambassadors champion UD wherever we live and work, from California to D.C., Minnesota to Singapore. We may have one student currently enrolled or half a dozen who have already graduated. We may be alumni of UD ourselves, or our children may be the first in the family to attend UD.

What we have in common is a deep appreciation for the University of Dallas.

Cyndy and Jeffrey Bishop

As grateful alumni of the Braniff Graduate School, we’re thrilled that our daughters Madeleine and Isabel both have chosen to attend UD for their undergraduate degrees. We know the kind of liberal arts education that UD provides, and we know that it prepares students for success in a myriad of fields like medicine, business, science and technology. UD has changed the life of our family. We hope you will join us as Parent Ambassadors to support one another and our children in the intellectual and spiritual endeavor that is UD.

Ed and Mary Oleksiak, P’13

UD provided our daughter Rachel with an outstanding academic education paired with a strong faith formation. Her semester in Rome and a Spanish language immersion summer session in Costa Rica provided a different view of the world and gave her confidence in her Spanish language skills for her career. It was a last-minute change of mind that led her to UD, and we are all glad it did.
