Welcome to Dominican University of California. Your student experience – both in and out of the classroom – is the main focus of everyone within the Division of Student Life. As you come to know us, you will learn that we are a team of caring and committed individuals who are passionate about student learning, growth, and development. Our goal is to challenge and support you during your time with us, so that you will find success while at Dominican and so as to prepare you for the many endeavors you will pursue once you leave the University. We strive to help students integrate the Dominican values of STUDY, SERVICE, COMMUNITY, and REFLECTION into their everyday experiences. In embracing and embodying these ideals, we hope that you will realize your potential for becoming ethical leaders and socially responsible global citizens.
On behalf of the entire staff, we welcome you to Dominican and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you in making the most of your educational experience.
Dr. Paul Raccanello, Dean of Students
College is not just about studying and good grades. A large part of the college experience is the social aspect. Make your student life experience one to remember and get involved.
