Dominican is located in Marin County, whose affluent and progressive
reputation is juxtaposed with a reality of extreme economic and racial
disparity. While the campus is situated in a privileged neighborhood, our
institution has deep ties in surrounding neighborhoods where resources and
representation for minoritized people are exceedingly disproportionate.
Dominican is committed to improving our internal policies and practices
related to equity and inclusion; it is also demonstrably engaged in
collaborating with local, long-term community partners to improve equity and
inclusion in Marin.
Our student body is remarkably diverse and we strive to see that diversity
reflected in our faculty and staff. We seek candidates from all backgrounds
who, through their research, teaching, work ethic, and service, will
meaningfully contribute to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus and
