Global Engagement

Fostering an appreciation of cultural diversity and global interdependence is a fundamental part of a Dominican student’s education. Your globally engaged faculty in the School of Liberal Arts and Education support cultural awareness, global social responsibility, and global inter-connectivity through study abroad courses in partnership with Dominican’s Global Education Office.
