Ohio Dominican University is committed to promoting peace and justice in the world by acting justly ourselves and by educating students to become ethical and effective leaders in the global society, grounded in the pursuit of truth, justice and peace.
Supportive of the Millennium Development Goals, Ohio Domincan provides programs and activities that engage the community in opportunities of furthering this agenda.
Some programs that show this vision include:
- The Core Curriculum, taken by all students, explores important questions such as what is the human person, how do we fit together in society, what is justice, and what is truth.
- Campus Ministry sponsors a wide variety of opportunities for students to serve the needy in the the Columbus area, as well as service trips during school break to work around the country and the world helping others.
- Students work collaboratively with other universities that have a Dominican presence throughout the United States in the Preaching in Action Conference. This conference offers a chance to learn how to promote justice through preaching.
- Sustainability and justice concerns help to drive our everyday and long-range goals, which can be seen by our newest buildings earning Gold Award for sustainable architecture.
