Faculty/Staff Global Engagement

Global engaged faculty/staff are defined as culturally aware, global social responsibility, global interconnectivity and able to move from theory to practice in the global realm.


Global Professional Development Programs

To contribute to the development of a globally engaged faculty and staff at Dominican, we offer Global Engagement opportunities for Dominican Faculty/Staff to include symposia, workshops, guest speakers, special events, global learning courses and programs.

We aim to increase global engagement of our diverse faculty and staff by supporting workshops on global learning topics each semester.  Faculty and staff are encouraged to attend these workshops.

November 16 – 20, 2016
International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of State. Inaugurated by President Bill Clinton in 2000, IEW celebrates the importance and benefits of international education in the U.S. and around the world. Today, IEW is celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Since 2012​, IEW has helped to showcase international education and foster inter-cultural understanding at ​Dominican​​. IEW focus has always been to promote awareness and understanding of our world’s diverse cultures both abroad, as well as within our own campus community. We hope this year’s exciting events provide you with a wealth of fun and interesting opportunities to experience the many cultures that are part of the​ Dominican​ community through food, music, dance and lectures.

This year's theme is "International Education: Advancing Access for All". We will celebrate the importance of global competency and education as a critical civil right and which recognizes 2015 as both the 25th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act and the 50th anniversary of Elementary & Secondary Education Act.


Dominican mission is to “Educate and prepare students to be ethical leaders and socially responsible global citizens who incorporate the Dominican values of study, reflection, community and service into their lives.” Beginning with that premise, we want to build a vibrant learning community that integrates global learning into curricular and co-curricular activities.
