Dominican University cares about the health and well-being of our entire community. Because of continuing health guidelines regarding large public gatherings, the University will postpone Alumnae/i Weekend activities to a later date. While the Office of Alumnae/i Relations is disappointed that we cannot celebrate with you as previously planned, in September, we ask for your patience and understanding during these days.

While this has not been an easy decision, we believe that postponing Alumnae/i Weekend for now is the prudent course of action. At the same time, we continue to create new and innovative opportunities for you to stay connected to Dominican and each other. To quote the words that one alumnus recently shared:

“A lot has happened in the world and the new normal is very different. These past few weeks have been a powerful reminder of just how connected we are to one another and how our choices today determine our options tomorrow.”

In Caritas et Veritas,

The Office of Alumnae/i Relations
