Community engagement is a central component of The Dominican Experience. Every one to two years Dominican University of California identifies a specific community engagement theme. Around this theme, faculty, staff and students organize curricula and co-curricula events and activities.
The community engagement theme for 2017-2018 is Democracy and Equity . Democracy and Equity related events and activities augment students' course work by connecting their classroom learning with issues relevant across local, national, and global communities. These events and activities include town hall forums, panel discussions, lectures and films
