At Ohio Dominican, academics are at the heart of everything we do. Institutions of higher learning exist to provide education for their students, and that education starts in the classroom.
It continues, of course, on athletic fields and in residence halls, in rehearsals and clubs, in the library and the lab, but it begins with the relationship between students and their instructors. Our mission is grounded in our identity as a Catholic and Dominican liberal arts institution.
The university's mission - To contemplate truth and share with others the fruits of that contemplation - serves as our guiding principle of teaching and learning.
Our core curriculum, taken by all students, focuses on seven learning outcomes that collectively identify our expectations for all Ohio Dominican graduates. Additionally, students must complete a sequence of courses in one of 45 undergraduate major areas of study including those in the arts, sciences, and professions. Led by a talented faculty dedicated to excellence in teaching and committed to helping students learn, our student engagement model focuses on serving the whole student through personal attention and assistance in collaboration with the Office of Student Development. To support your achievement of academic excellence, Ohio Dominican University provides essential support through these resources: Academic Affairs Office, Academic Advising Center, Academic Resource Center, which includes Tutoring Services, Career Development Center, Office of the Registrar, Information Services, and the ODU Bookstore.
