We are a community of radical hospitality that fosters belonging.

We honor and cultivate the rhythm of contemplation and action.

We do theology, ministry, and formation that begins with students' social locations—their cultures, faith traditions and their own human development.

We are called to interfaith dialogue and action because we are a Catholic, Dominican community.

We witness and celebrate the places where God's right relationship, or justice, emerges and we commit ourselves to bringing about that same justice in daily life. 

University Ministry’s first priority is to provide the Dominican community with opportunities and resources to support and grow in the Dominican Order’s four pillars—Community, Service, Study and Prayer. We aim to create a welcoming and integrated environment for our students and to reach out to the wider community.

We commit to each member of this community feeling a sense of belonging. Our cooperation with one another is inspired by the University’s Catholic and Dominican heritage and is embodied in its motto: Caritas et Veritas. We invite you to join us in this commitment, and to share with us your inspiration for Love and Truth!


We strive to both build and support community through outreach and contemplation. Retreats, interfaith programs, and social events are some of the ways that University Ministry builds a diverse and inclusive community. 


At the heart of ministry is relationship and we seek to serve others compassionately and interpersonally.  We also seek to create structural change so that our communities and institutions can be more just. Join us for a one-time service opportunity, a week-long immersion, or an awareness program in which we learn about and act to create a more just and humane world!


Saint Catherine of Siena wrote, "If you are who you should be you will set the world on fire." Study enables us to set the world on fire by creating individuals who know themselves, God, and others more deeply.


Participating in communal prayer and contemplative practices help us learn and grow in faith and understanding. Through dynamic celebrations of the Roman Catholic Mass, rich interfaith prayer experiences and dialogues, regular contemplative experiences on the University's two labyrinths, and the companionship of retreats, the diversity and depth of our heritage can be experienced in so many ways.
