About Encuentro Dominicano

 

The Encuentro Dominicano (ED) is an academic, living-learning program integrating community-based learning in a cross-cultural immersion context. It is a collaborative response by the Creighton College of Arts & Sciences, Office of International Programs and the Division of Student Life.  Encuentro Dominicano originated from over 40 year of involvement with the Dominican Republic through Creighton's Institute of Latin American Concern (ILAC).

Creighton University's Mission Statement calls for participation in the tradition of the Society of Jesus and its integrating vision of the world. That vision includes a faith that promotes justice, service to others, appreciation of ethnic and cultural diversity, stimulation of creative and critical thinking, and provision of ethical perspectives for dealing with an increasingly complex world.
