Creighton's Semester-Long Study Abroad Program in the Dominican Republic

Encuentro Dominicano embodies the Jesuit mission of promoting justice, striving for excellence, and dedication to the truth.
• Encuentro centers around service-learning, travel, and building community with fellow students and Dominicans – all while experiencing the rich and vibrant culture of the Dominican Republic.
• Each student will experience service, academic life, and two immersion trips living and working with Dominican families in a rural community.

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.

Take this semester to stop and reflect on what really matters in your life. Learn about yourself, the world around you, and have a transformative experience.
