Volunteer

Service and social justice are the means by which students to reach out to others in community service. Students organize trips to various community agencies during the year. Trips include both education about the social issue and the opportunity to make a positive impact locally. There are also opportunities to serve the local DUC community!

Together, we respond to the needs of our sisters and brothers, especially those who are poor and marginalized. We live out the Dominican mission of proclaiming the gospel through our ministry, common life, prayer and study within a diverse, inter-generational community.
