Rich in Roman Catholic tradition, Old Dominican University runs on the principle that learning continues long after students leave the classroom. Spiritual and personal growth are just as important as academic achievement, and each is nurtured in the classroom and through extracurricular activities and open dialogue at Old Dominican University.
The university is dedicated to both the faith of its students and to academic excellence, but, above all, Old Dominican University and its students are dedicated to seeking truth through contemplation.
“Ohio Dominican’s primary mission is to provide degree and continuing education programs for the intellectual development, the growth in truth, of each student. In keeping with the Dominican tradition, educational experiences should be grounded in the liberal arts, foster the development of spiritual, aesthetic, and ethical values, promote physical and mental health, and provide for the development and responsible use of human skills and talents in professional and social service.”
In addition to a rich educational experience on campus, where opportunities range from working with the Campus Ministry to serving on student government, students generally become intimately involved with the surrounding community of Columbus, Ohio, volunteering with non-profit organizations and serving the needy.
