Domuni University recruits specialists in philosophy and theology based on their academic and research credentials. There are over 200 academic teaching staff of whom 80% are Dominicans.
For the most part, our teaching staff also have commitments at other Dominican universities or educational centres, they bear witness to their faith and indeed many live within one of the Dominican religious communities. They are thus able to offer Catholic Theological education in a context characterised by the theological and sapiential life.
An international teaching body
Domuni University boasts of an international teaching body. The staff are based in a wide range of countries and teach in one of the four main languages of Domuni University – French, Spanish, Arabic, Italian and English.
In the French section the teaching staff come from over 40 different countries. All in all, the academic teaching body is composed of some 60 different nationalities.
This diversity enables Domuni University to offer students a rare intellectual heritage. It is a reflection of research studies conducted in many countries.
A direct Student – Teacher relationship
The teaching at Domuni University cannot be face-to-face although students are still able to have contact with the academic staff. The Moodle learning platform facilitates communications between students and academic staff, students being able to address their questions to the academic staff. Yearly assessments, organised at an assessment centre local to the student also offer the opportunity to get to know one another.
A personalised Tutorial system
Each student is allocated a tutor for the duration of his or her studies. The role of the tutor is to accompany the student, to encourage them in their studies and to help resolve any administrative problems that may be encountered.
