Campus Ministry

res

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me. . ." 

The Office of Campus Ministry at the University of Dallas seeks and trusts in the Wisdom and power of the Spirit of God, who, through the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ, calls us to become a community of faith. As a Eucharist-centered community, we strive for spiritual, intellectual, and moral development of all our members, so that together we can work for justice and peace while preparing students as effective leaders in church and society. In the spirit of true ecumenism, we welcome students of all faith traditions to participate as fully as possible in all our prayer and programming. We have much to learn from each other.

Located on the 2nd floor of the Haggar student center, the Campus Ministry Office is always open, and anyone is welcome, either to talk to one of our staff members or to just relax and enjoy a snack.

Campus Ministry also offers a variety of activities and other ways for students to get involved in the University of Dallas community. From a lecture/discussion series to Bible Studies to volunteer opportunities throughout the university and Dallas area communities, there is something for everyone. For more information regarding Campus Ministry activities, see our Programs page.

Senior Story 2020: For Bio Major, UD's Value Transcends Science

When it came time for Ana Henriquez, BA '20 and Class of 2020 valedictorian, to pick a college, she knew she wanted a small, Catholic, liberal arts university that offered both biology and Latin. That sounds like UD in a nutshell, and she thought so too. In the spring of her senior year of high school at The Atonement Academy in San Antonio, as she approached UD's campus for her last visit, she knew she would spend the next four years there and shouted to her mom, "Look, that's my tower! That's my home!"

But while UD was in his blood, he ultimately chose UD because he wanted both a liberal arts education and a degree in physics, and he knew UD was the best place to combine the two.
