Campus Ministries is enlivened by the Catholic faith, bringing together students, faculty and staff in the common search for Veritas - the truth.
Our motto H-O-P-E stands for Hospitality - OP is the Dominican way - E - for everyone! The Dominican way means seekers of truth through prayer, reflection, community, study and service.
