The Connecting Link partners with Dominican University

The Connecting Link is pleased to announce a new partnership with Dominican University to provide graduate-level credits in continuing education for teachers.

Dominican University, located just 10 miles west of downtown Chicago in River Forest, Illinois, is a relationship-centered community rooted in a vibrant liberal arts and sciences education. Across more than 50 undergraduate degrees, 20 graduate degrees and 2 PhD programs, Dominican offers rigorous curriculum in an intimate learning environment with classes that average just 16 students. U.S. News & World Report ranks Dominican in the Top 15 among regional master’s-level universities and the No. 1 school for the social mobility of its students in the Midwest. As a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) since 2011, Dominican is a leader in how to truly serve today’s diverse Latinx student populations, expanding scholarships, reducing equity gaps and creating new pathways to graduate school and careers.

The Connecting Link was founded in 1981 ​for teachers, by teachers ​with the mission of offering engaging and relevant courses designed to meet the professional learning needs of educators. Courses provided through The Connecting Link are aligned with national standards and designed to support teachers’ development.

The Connecting Link is thrilled to partner with Dominican University to enhance the learning opportunities available to certified educators in Illinois and nationwide. Both entities share similar values and goals, including a commitment to enhancing lifelong learning.
