Who is CARES?

The University of Dallas participates in the healthcare consortium, CARES (Collegiate Association Resource of the Southwest). The purpose of CARES is to provide benefits for faculty and staff members of participating colleges and universities. CARES was formed in 2004 and provides health benefits for University of Dallas employees and Austin College employees. All decisions regarding CARES are made by its board of directors. Each participating school designates one board representative (a member of the senior staff with experience in Finance, Administration or Human Resources) and has one vote in all matters decided by the board. CARES employs one staff position, an executive director, to manage the day-to-day activities of the consortium, interact with vendors and market to private schools to increase CARES membership.
