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.

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.
