Dominican’s Scholarly and Creative Works Conference is open to all members of the University and greater community. The conference kicks off with an inspiring keynote address followed by live music, compelling scholarship, and much more. Throughout the conference, students deliver oral and poster presentations, gallery exhibitions, and live performances to students, staff, faculty, and community members. 

Creating signature work and then presenting it to an audience is part of every student’s Dominican Experience. It deepens learning and underlines the value of their work. 

Information about the 2020 Scholarly and Creative Works Conference will be posted here soon.
