Members of the Barry University community recently joined leaders from other Dominican institutions at the 13th Biennial Dominican Colloquium. Fifteen members of the Barry faculty and staff attended the conference which was hosted by Malloy College.
Held every other year at one of the 17 Dominican colleges and universities, the Dominican Colloquium serves as an avenue for faculty, staff, and students to come together and engage in discussions on their Dominican heritage and issues impacting Catholic Higher Education. This year’s theme was “Inspiring Compassion, Fostering Engagement Locally-Nationally-Globally.”
Faculty, staff, and students from 15 Dominican colleges and universities presented on topics ranging from service learning and community partnerships to research and technology.
Barry’s engagement at the Colloquium was impressive with all 15 attendees serving as presenters, including Sister Linda Bevilacqua, OP, PhD who participated on a panel entitled Building Community through Partnerships.
