Some 300 men and women will be awarded bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees on Sunday, May 13th at the University of Dallas’ Commencement ceremony. Graduates will receive degrees from the Constantin College of Liberal Arts, the undergraduate College of Business, Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts and the School of Ministry.
These men and women will serve and are serving our community, our parishes and schools in many important roles, once again emphasizing the value of the University of Dallas to the civic and Catholic communities of North Texas. This is our Catholic university and it is an incredible asset to the Diocese of Dallas and the Church of North Texas.
Admiral Patrick Walsh, United States Navy (Ret) will deliver the commencement address. Admiral Walsh is an honor graduate of Jesuit College Preparatory School and the U.S. Naval Academy. He holds masters and doctoral degrees from Tufts University. Prior to his recent retirement, Admiral Walsh served as commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. He is a member of one of Dallas’ leading Catholic families. We welcome Admiral Walsh and share his grief over the recent loss of his father.
I congratulate the graduates on their accomplishments and remind them that their education does not end with the awarding of a degree, but instead is a lifetime journey.
