Consistent with this declaration and Dominican ideals, the University recommends that every member of the community support and express his or her active commitment to diversity utilizing these guiding principles:
E Pluribus Unum; Ut Unum Sint* Two profound visions -- our American civic tradition and our Catholic religious heritage -- inform Dominican University of California’s commitment to the principle of pluralism and to the dream of a reconciled community. Faithful to these birthrights, Dominican seeks to nurture attitudes and behaviors that promote global awareness, inclusive sensibilities, and respect for the dignity of each individual regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, culture, political conviction, or disability -- all in the light of the Truth that breathes forth love and in the hope of a common life that transforms the world.
