Inviting the World to Learn
As a Dominican Sister, Ana Gonzalez is called to study, contemplate, and preach God’s revelation. In her ministry as Coordinator of International Admissions at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT, Sr. Ana also shares the good news of educational opportunity to international students.
“Albertus Magnus also offers international students the same financial assistance offered to local students, making a valuable American education at a well-respected institution a reality for students who believed such an opportunity beyond their grasp,” says Sr. Ana.
An immigrant herself, Sr. Ana brings a unique perspective to her work. “Offering American students the opportunity to learn with those from other cultures, and giving international students the opportunity to experience and contribute to American culture, helps these future leaders realize that we are one economy, one climate, one world. Only by seeing past our differences to our vital shared concerns can we solve the real problems that we face.”
The Dominican Sisters of Peace support adult learning centers, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, after school homework help for children and teens, and kindergarten through secondary education in Louisiana, Ohio, Tennesee, and Connecticut.
