Who is CARES?

The University of Dallas participates in a healthcare consortium called CARES (Collegiate Association Resource of the Southwest). The sole 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 as well as the employees of two other private schools in Texas: Austin College and Texas Christian University. All decisions regarding CARES are made by the 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 two staff positions, an executive director and accountant to manage the day-to-day activities of the consortium, interact with vendors as well as marketing to private schools to increase CARES membership.
