Founders' Week 2013 Schedule of Events

Founders’ Week commemorates Barry University’s history, mission, Catholic identity, and Dominican heritage. During this week, we remember our founders: Mother Mary Gerald Barry, Bishop Patrick Barry, Monsignor William Barry, John Thompson, and the Adrian Dominican Sisters for whom Barry is a sponsored institution. Through celebrating as a university community, we seek to deepen our personal and collective understanding of how each of us lives Barry’s Mission and Core Commitments.
