College History

History

Ohio Dominican University is a private Catholic liberal arts university, guided in its educational mission by the Dominican motto, taken from the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, "Contemplare et contemplata aliis tradere," which means, "To contemplate and to share with others the fruits of this contemplation." Today, embracing the Dominican ideals of "Veritas," or Truth, the University holds to a slightly modified motto, "To contemplate truth and to share with others the fruits of this contemplation."

The Dominican tradition of spirituality is rooted in common life: liturgical prayer and meditation, study, and ministry of the Word. These values continue to guide the steps of faculty, students and staff at Ohio Dominican University. Ohio Dominican University was chartered in 1911 as the College of St. Mary of the Springs. It was founded as an all-women's school, becoming coeducational in 1964.

The college changed its name to Ohio Dominican College on July 1, 1968. Ohio Dominican became a university on July 1, 2002, under an ambitious strategic plan to become one of the country's preeminent small Catholic universities.

Mission Statement:As a Catholic liberal arts University with a Dominican tradition, Ohio Dominican University is guided in its educational mission by the Dominican motto: to contemplate truth and to share with others the fruits of this contemplation.Truth is the basis of human freedom and the source of human effectiveness.

Truth is dynamic, an infinite realm in which the person grows throughout life to the fullness of his or her humanity through progressive realization of the significance of old truths and progressive attainment of new truths. Truth can be found in all cultures and traditions, in the whole range of the arts and sciences, and, in a special way, in religious faith and theological reflection on faith.
