A central philosophy of the NDSC is that increased collaboration between Dominican student groups and community organizations helps create a more comfortable, familiar environment for Dominican students - and thus positively affecting the waning retention and graduation rates in the community. This year's conference theme is “Honrando el Pasado y Formando el Futuro” or "Honoring the Past and Forming the Future."
