Joint Statements on Racism

Dear UD Students and Faculty:
The love of truth and justice must be more than a motto.

As leaders of the University of Dallas we, Bishop Edward Burns, Chancellor, Richard Husseini, Board of Trustees Chair, and Dr. Thomas Hibbs, President, wish to ensure that our words align with the spirit that animates our communal endeavors.

Let us be clear: racism is a sin against God, who created all in His image, and against our shared humanity.  The authoritative teaching on this subject is consistent -- our understanding of the relationship between God and his creation is found in the very heart of the Gospel.  It is reaffirmed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and finds expression in the proclamations of Saint Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis.  We stand in solidarity with the teachings of our shared faith.


Most Reverend Edward J. Burns, Bishop of Dallas, Chancellor, University of Dallas
Richard Husseini, BS '88, Board Chair, University of Dallas
Thomas S. Hibbs, Ph.D., BA '82 MA '83, President, University of Dallas
