You’re invited to join Ohio Dominican University during the 2015-16 academic year on an exploration of our academic common theme of Truth. The fourth-year seminar of the Core invites students and faculty to extend the conversation of human nature, justice, and the common good to address the question, what truths have we learned?
The Office of Academic Affairs (through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities) and the Center for Dominican Studies are co-sponsoring the events, which provide comprehensive opportunities for the students, alumni, staff, faculty and friends to engage in the conversation together.
All presentations will take place from 3:30-5:00 p.m., in Sansbury Hall’s Colonial Room on ODU’s main campus.
