Mission and Ministry

Rooted in the Catholic Dominican traditions and committed to promoting the mission of Dominican University, Mission and Ministry seeks to foster a relationship-centered community of faith marked by prayer, contemplative study, pastoral concern and commitment to justice.

Mission Integration

The promoter of mission integration provides programs that develop an appreciation of mission in light of the Catholic and Dominican traditions of the university. Through these programs mission integration supports and promotes the Dominican ideas of community, study, prayer and service.

Siena Center

The St. Catherine of Siena Center was established to bring faith and scholarship to the critical issues of church and society for the benefit of the university community, professional ministers and the wider community of faith. It is dedicated to examining and furthering the role of the Christian in today’s world.

The center addresses these issues in a variety of ways, including lectures, symposia, conferences, workshops, retreats and research and discussion groups. Events are scheduled in harmony with the Church’s calendar and the Dominican heritage of the university.
