Dr. Dominguez believes that information in itself is not useful unless we also learn the tools to understand and apply it to any field of our interest. A strong believer in the power that community-based endeavors hold, Dr. Dominguez advocates for constantly challenging ourselves to develop new skills and insight with which we can influence our communities, from local to global, in positive ways. The arts are an essential piece to this process. Looking through, around, and into art enhances the human component of being who we are. Dr. Dominguez has delivered lectures and workshops to art and education groups at local and international levels, and has presented at Education and Research conferences with the topic of creativity and the identity of the artist-teacher. “Only the difficult is stimulating.” -Jose Lezama Lima, 1957
