Learn From Experience
Dominican offers you hands-on personal experiences that will encourage you to try new things, push past your comfort zone and learn from your failures and successes. You will be encouraged to experiment and then reflect on everything you learned so that next time you might do things a bit differently, a bit better. It’s a process that allows you to learn and grow and it’s the foundation of everything we do.
Experiential Learning Opportunities
The Service-Learning Program provides training, resources, and support for students, faculty and community partners. The program prepares students to be engaged citizens in a global society.
There is no better way to develop a rich understanding of different cultural perspectives than by spending time living, learning and working in a foreign country. Dominican’s Study Abroad and Global Education teams will help you get from here to there and back again.
Our Career Development team will help you find an internship that matches both your academic and personal goals. Through internships, you will gain valuable real-life experience, build your professional network and give a significant boost to your resume.
Complete signature work such as a research project, mural, or business plan and then craft a digital portfolio that captures the journey and all the great things that came out of it.
Eighty percent of employers say it would be useful to see an electronic portfolio of student work that summarizes and demonstrates a candidate’s accomplishments.
Even better, you’ll have an opportunity to share your work at the annual Scholarly and Creative Works Conference.
There are many ways to engage with your community and Dominican offers several methods to give options to learn, grow, and make a significant impact.
