A message from President Mary B. Marcy...


Our moment is now.

Dominican has always responded to the needs of its students and to the demands of the wider world. Guided by our values of study, reflection, community, and service, our mission is to educate and prepare students to be ethical leaders and socially responsible global citizens. Now, at a moment when our students and our country need a renewed vision of liberal arts education, we offer One Dominican—a set of strategic initiatives that allow us to integrate the best of the liberal arts and the best of the professions. It began with landmark gifts from extraordinarily generous donors and it continues with you.

The results:

  • Our students graduate with an exceptional, fully integrated set of skills, habits, values and experiences. They become flexible, forward-thinking leaders in communities around the world.
  • Dominican becomes a resource, even a model, for colleges and universities eager to develop programs and curricula that speak to the needs of the present and to the ambitions of the future.
  • The Dominican campus becomes singularly focused on a comprehensive Dominican educational experience.


We will provide students with the best of Dominican and the best of American higher education. We will work together toward a clear set of shared goals. We will become One Dominican.
