Who are we?

DD Academy is the main program of The Foundation for Science and Liberal Arts Domus Dorpatensis. The mission of Domus Dorpatensis is to support, enhance and promote societal, cultural and scientific activities. The best premise for that goal is an open society.  That is why the main goal of DD Academy is also supporting the growth and development of protectors of the open society.

Domus Dorpatensis funds the main part of the DD Academy program. The Foundation does this through social entrepreneurship - by renting out guest apartments and seminar rooms. Every euro earned helps to support the growth of even more young people.


DD Academy can only happen thanks to many partners, sponsors and funders. We would especially like to thank the supporter of our many projects - National Foundation of Civil Society.


Help students become changemakers who protect the open society wherever they are in the world.


DD Academy program is created and carried out by a team of volunteers, together with the CEO of Domus Dorpatensis, the office manager and the rest of the staff.
