Dominican University ranks in the top tier of Midwest regional universities, according to U.S. News & World Report—which also cited Dominican as a best value for nine years in a row.
Small by design, we're rich in resources and opportunities. Class size average is only 15, the student-faculty ratio is only 12 to 1 and professors, not teaching assistants, teach all classes.
We offer more than 50 academic programs, nine pre-professional programs and four graduate schools in library and information science, business, education and social work. Our beautiful main campus is located in River Forest, just 10 miles west of downtown Chicago. We also offer classes in 12 other locations to make our programs as accessible as possible.
