Office of the President
The Dominican Experience is committed to the flourishing of every student, in college and beyond. Our students receive customized integrative coaching, engage with their community, complete signature work, and publish a digital portfolio.
We are one of few institutions in the nation holding our students to the highest academic standards while asking them to apply that experience to the community and the world.
As you navigate through this website, you will find the policies we use not only to ensure your degree or credential is of the highest quality, but also to create a strong social and intellectual community of which you are a crucial part. It is a campus that will both challenge and support you.
In addition to your academic pursuits, there are many ways to become involved in our community and make the most of your experience at Dominican. I encourage you to get to know your peers through student and resident life activities and join your fellow Penguins at our athletics events.
We welcome you to our community of scholars and invite you to reflect and enjoy considering the variety of possibilities that await you during your time at Dominican.
