Our mission is to educate and prepare students to be ethical leaders and socially-responsible citizens who incorporate the values of study, reflection, community, and service into their lives. We seek to distinguish ourselves through innovative, value-added education and memorable student experiences. We have enjoyed a century-long reputation for excellence in scholarship, research, and community outreach.
We offer more than 60 programs of study that reflect the diversity and creativity of our faculty and students. With over 2,200 graduate and undergraduate students, we combine personal direction and small class sizes associated with smaller colleges with the academic resources of a larger university.
Guided by our Dominican heritage, we are committed to diversity, sustainability, and the integration of the liberal arts, the sciences, and professional programs. Dominican’s focus on engaged learning and interdisciplinary studies provides a challenging academic environment. In the sciences, we excel at involving undergraduates in sophisticated research projects that prepare our students to present at academic conferences nationwide and publish alongside their faculty mentors in peer reviewed journals. In the humanities, our students combine dance and musical performance with the study of philosophy, literature, world cultures, and religion. We also offer strong undergraduate professional programs in business, education, and nursing as well as graduate offerings that ready our students for leadership roles in business, education, counseling psychology and occupational therapy.
If you are new to Dominican, I hope this virtual visit encourages you to come see us in person. If you already know us, please visit this site often for latest news from campus.
