Academic Enrichment Center

Welcome to the Academic Enrichment Center

The Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) is a supportive learning commons where students can step beyond the comfortable routines of the classroom and actively shape their education and their lives. The AEC's four units provide students opportunities to become the intellectual, professional, and publicly engaged individuals they wish to be.


Literacy and Learning Resources provides a range of tutoring and academic support services.

Career Development provides students with career advisingworkshops, internship opportunities, and other strategies for building a rewarding life beyond their years at Dominican.

Global and Civic Engagement houses International Student Advising and Study Abroad, and offers students opportunities to cross cultural and national boundaries, deepen their civic literacy and engage as active citizens of the world.

Research and Creativity  encourages students' creative expression and opportunities to pursue independent scholarship and collaborative research with each other and faculty members.
