Community is one of the four Dominican Ideals, and is the foundation of our campus life. We are citizens of Dominican University and of the global community.
The class of 2008 shield depicts the linking of people who are across continents, but are rooted, like strong trees, in community. The figure on the left, with its hand over its heart, represents harmony and understanding. The figure on the right, with its hand raised upward, searches for wisdom and guidance. Both figures are slightly turned to the other in a display of friendship, compassion, and understanding.
May these figures underscore for us the importance of bringing these qualities to both local and global communities.
