Columbus, OH – In response to the success of its Dominican Scholars Program for Education majors, Ohio Dominican University (ODU) now offers its unique scholars program to students majoring in Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Finance, International Business, Public Relations or Sport Management. 

 “The Dominican Scholars Program for Education majors has been so successful in connecting our exceptional students to teaching professionals – including Ohio Dominican’s faculty members – as well as other future education leaders,” said Jessica Hall, ODU's Dominican Scholars program coordinator. “The program is a perfect fit for career-focused students, where professional experience, networking, leadership development and service projects enhance their ability to compete in their respective field upon graduation.” 

 The University now wants to provide this same opportunity to outstanding Business majors, Hall explained. “It will provide a singular experience for ODU's Business majors to connect what they learn in the classroom with practices in the real world,” she added. “They also will develop deeper relationships with students, faculty and future employers.” 

The Dominican Scholars Program provides the next generation of business and education leaders with a living-learning community that enhances their personal and professional development. Education and Business majors will benefit from programs designed for their success, including leadership training, mentoring and networking with professionals in their field of study. 

“Sometimes the scholar programs at universities have an academic component without a living component or a living component without an academic component,” Hall said. “We tried to create the best of both worlds with a living-learning community that has both curricular and co-curricular emphases.” 

Additional information on the Dominican Scholars Program for Education and Business majors is available on ODU’s website, www.ohiodominican.edu/dominicanscholars.
