Message from the President
Dominican University ranks among the top 20 of Midwest regional universities, according to U.S. News & World Report—which also cited Dominican as one of three Illinois schools offering a "best value" in college education.
Small by design, we're rich in resources and opportunities. The average class size is only 17, the student-faculty ratio is 11 to 1, and professors, not teaching assistants, teach all classes.
We offer more than 50 academic majors including several preprofessional programs and four graduate schools in library and information science, business, education and social work. Our beautiful main campus is located in River Forest, just 10 miles west of downtown Chicago. We also offer classes in several locations in the Chicago area and overseas.
Dominican is a Catholic university committed to independent thought and respect for divergent opinions. Whatever your personal beliefs, you will appreciate our values-centered approach to education that embraces the whole person.
If you are searching for a rigorously intellectual and professionally indispensable education, you haven't finished looking until you have considered Dominican.
