The event is one of several events scheduled during the 2016-17 academic year based on the university’s academic theme: what does it mean to be human? ODU's Core Curriculum is a series of courses that provide a unifying academic experience throughout each student's academic journey. The curriculum is unique to Ohio Dominican, and is a combination of four seminar courses and the general degree requirements. In the Core seminars, students draw from all of their courses to engage in thought-provoking interdisciplinary discussions, readings and experiences.
