A Vision for the Future

On March 26, 2014, Dominican received a $17.5 million gift, which will grow to $25 million following a series of challenge matches. This historic and generous gift will enable the University to create a new model of academic programming and support designed to improve student success.



We will develop a distinctive Dominican experience that integrates a rigorous academic program with highly effective outside-the-classroom experiences— such as service learning, research and internships. In addition to supporting this new model, we will establish the Françoise O. Lepage Center for Global Innovation. We will make the newly named Andrew P. Barowsky School of Business a business school for the 21st century. We will reimagine the campus—the spaces in which we live, the ways in which we connect—holding on to the best of our history and building what is most important for the future.
