University of Dallas Student Handbook

The University is dedicated to the pursuit of wisdom, of truth, and of virtue as the proper and primary ends of education. The university seeks to educate its students so they may develop intellectual and moral virtues, prepare themselves for life and work in a problematic and changing world, and become leaders able to act responsibly for their own good and for the good of their families, communities, country and church. The university as a whole is shaped by the long tradition of Catholic learning, and acknowledges its commitment to the Catholic Church and its teaching.
