In-Person Classes Suspended for Spring Semester

We have now made the very difficult but necessary decision to move all courses to an online format for the remainder of the semester. We understand how life-altering this must feel, especially to the graduating class. We will walk through these trying times together as a tight-knit university community. I expect to update the UD community soon about Commencement.

Important Update: Modifications to Spring Semester

After consulting with our Board of Trustees, our faculty, and various medical and science professionals, I am convinced we must make additional changes to the spring semester that are difficult and unprecedented, but necessary.

President's Coronavirus Update 03/13/2020

First, and most importantly, there are no suspected cases of the virus on campus. We are continuing to be vigilant. Any student who feels ill should contact our staff physician, Dr. Lora Rodriguez, at the Student Health Clinic at 972-721-5322 immediately.

Letter to Students 03/11/2020

No doubt, you are aware that many universities have had to make the difficult choice to move their courses to a distance learning model for a portion of the rest of the semester, or in some cases for the rest of the semester. Of course, we have already had to make that choice for our Rome campus.

Statement of University of Dallas President Thomas S. Hibbs, Ph.D.

In light of these new warnings from both the CDC and the State Department, Dr. Hatlie and Ihave decided to bring our UD students back to the United States. We are confident our students remain safe on our Rome campus due to its remoteness from affected areas. However, given the fluidness of the situation in Italy, we will begin to repatriate students immediately.
