Adrian Dominican Associate Life

Barry University is committed to developing leaders who are prepared to uphold the vision and legacy of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, our religious sponsors. Hosting the Adrian Dominican Associate Life formation sessions at Barry is an important step in helping us achieve the goal to deepen our understanding of the institution’s Dominican heritage and Adrian Dominican foundation.

The Adrian Dominican Associate Life Series includes six sessions, all presented by Adrian Dominican Sisters. Faculty and staff are invited to attend those sessions that particularly interest them or attend all six sessions in preparation for applying for Associate Life.
