Annual McGreal Lecture

The objective of the annual McGreal Lecture is to engage the Dominican University community in a stimulating, strategic conversation as a way of kick starting the new academic year. The event attracts an audience of faculty, staff, trustees, Dominican Sisters and students, many of whom are first-generation and increasingly diverse. The majority of our students are from the City of Chicago and, therefore, are concerned and actively responding to challenges impacting many neighborhoods in our city and country at large.
 
The McGreal Lecture honors the late Sister Nona McGreal, OP, former director of Project OPUS, a national program of research on the history of American Dominicans.
