The “Spirit of the Founders Award” is highly regarded at Dominican University. This award represents a respect for the values and traditions that have endured for centuries and holds the promise that the Dominican tradition will be carried on. The “Spirit of the Founders Award” also represents for its recipients a strong belief in their potential as leaders, as they leave Dominican University to make their mark in the world.
