Called to Teach

The University of Dallas has always understood that good teaching goes beyond the simple transfer of information and has the power to shape individual human lives and characters. And, by a conservative estimate, UD alumni will pass on the wisdom of a people to approximately 40,000 students this year at public, private and charter schools. That's an appropriate legacy and a sober responsibility for a school who aims to form its students in virtue so that they may lead and serve their communities. With more than 60 years of experience forming teachers, the university been hard at work on new ways to prepare teachers for work in this problematic and changing world.
