What does that have to do with the Dominican Experience?

The Dominican Experience is designed for the twenty-first century student––the thinker, the doer, the artist, the activist, the trailblazer, the entrepreneur––from every walk of life.

And we’ve done our research. The data shows that some educational practices are better than others. We’ve picked the best ones and built them into the Dominican Experience.
