Its a bureaucratic place, but the professors and most staff love what they do.

I worked at Dominican University of California

Pros

Its a beautiful campus and they are making tons of great changes in the admin department. They have an awesome new president who is really making waves, in a good way. The old president needed to go and was super old school and not popular.

Cons

It is an academic environment, which isn't inherently bad, just means there is a lot of bureaucracy, a lot! So be prepared for slowing moving processes that need to be approved by 10 different people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep shaking up the over-sized administration department and put more emphasis on the students experience so they leave with a great feeling about their alma mater.

    Pros

    Great colleagues (for the most part)
    Great pleace to grow because of the small school environment = a lot of opportunity to be creative.

    Cons

    Administrators compensation is beyond excessive!
    Growth in student population doesn't mean growth in staff to support students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize what and where we are as an institution of higher education. We are not Berkeley, Stanford, or USF. Work with what we've got!
