  • Student Organization
    Each year, members of ODU's Social Justice Club choose to address one or two primary issues of social injustice in the Columbus community or around the world. Examples include AIDs awareness, human trafficking, childhood poverty and racism.

    The group sponsors speakers and activities on campus such as the Hunger Banquet. They also provide voluntary service in community organizations such as the local Habitat for Humanity Store.

    Contact Dr. Julie Hart, faculty advisor, for more information.
  • Internships
    Ohio Dominican is just minutes from downtown Columbus, where students have the opportunity to participate in one or more internships with a variety of companies and organizations. Central Ohio enjoys a diverse economy with many internship possibilities in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

    Ohio Dominican's faculty and Career Development Center are eager to help interested students secure relevant internship experiences.
