One of the University of Dallas's many traditions is Charity Week. Led by the Junior class, Charity Week occurs during the fall semester and involves several student-run events, booths and activities that gather the entire campus together to raise money for charity.

Responsible for organizing and managing all aspects of the week, the Junior class has the opportunity to reunite after many of them spent their last year apart, experiencing their Rome semesters in the fall or spring of the previous year. Charity Week offers a chance for leadership, community and giving that is organized by the Juniors and reaches all of the students, faculty and staff.
