LIBRARY: Engaging students and faculty in a thriving intellectual community

 

I am truly fortunate to work with a faculty committed to student mentorship and guided by Dominican’s core values of study, service, community, and reflection. Our faculty bring their research and creative work to classroom practice. They set the standard for engaged learning, as well as for leading local and international educational and service opportunities.
