At Ohio Dominican, we strive to provide opportunities for personal growth and community enrichment through our service programs.

Service is one of the many ways we live out the call to preach the Good News of the Gospel to those we encounter.

Not only is service important for our growth and development as a University, it also impacts the communities we serve, locally, nationally and internationally.

Be sure to join us for one or all of our service opportunities. If you don't see something that interests you, please contact the Office of Campus Ministry to suggest your own ideas.
