The Cor Fund relieves the University's dependence on tuition to meet operating costs. Currently, tuition revenue only covers 72% of the operating budget of the University. As our enrollment continues to grow and our academic programs continue to excel, we are committed to providing a transformational education experience for each and every student.
The Cor Fund supports five main areas:
At the University of Dallas, we strive to ensure that students who want to pursue an education at UD have the scholarship and financial support they need. Approximately 95% of students receive financial aid at UD.
The Cor Fund helps ensure that our faculty maintain their recognition as experts in their field, have the ability to conduct research and have the resources they need to utilize new technology in the classroom.
The Cor Fund helps support programming and initiatives through Campus Ministry, Student Government, Student Programming at UD, honor societies and professional societies which helps enable students to develop themselves as future civic and faith leaders.
Student success is predicated on having a sound mind and body. The Cor Fund supports essential services for our students including Health and Wellness Services, counseling services and the Maher Recreation Center which are available to all students.
With a growing campus population and changing technology needs, UD strives to enhance all of our facilities in a way that provides for an optimal educational experience. The Cor Fund helps support technology advancements, energy efficient building enhancements, the creation of new student spaces, laboratory upgrades, and general facility maintenance.
