The Mission of the Center for Dominican Studies is:
- to promote the Dominican charism of preaching;
- to provide opportunities for members of the University and the community to understand and experience the meaning and value of Dominican education; and
- to serve as a public voice at the University and in the community regarding issues of importance to the church, culture and society.
The Center for Dominican Studies at Ohio Dominican University focuses on the Dominican motto, “To contemplate truth and share with others the fruits of this contemplation,” and the four pillars of Dominican life: study, prayer, community and ministry.
