"The food was spectacular and made me feel respected as a professional."
"The campus is beautiful. After class I walk around and take it all in. It's like meditation."
"The food, the campus, the instructors--it was more like summer camp than school."
Jeff House- Institute Director: "As a director, I appreciate the New England feel of the campus, the extraordinary care with which Epicurean prepares its food, and the willingness of the University to accommodate us. Our selection of Dominican for our institute is the main reason our participants attend our sessions."

Marin on the Bay ASPI

Dominican University has been home base for our Four Directions workshop series for a number of years. Our attendees love the beauty of the campus. We love how wonderful and easy it is work with Vickie Hall, our Events and Conference Services rep. We look forward to holding our workshop series on campus in 2021 and beyond.
