It is a truism that we live in a global village. Technology, communication, and the movement of people and ideas have blurred national and continental boundaries. Presentations from students, staff, faculty, and the administration at the Global Voices Symposium illustrated that concept. Themes of community, identity, human understanding, and hospitality were dominant.

Diversity and inclusion are core values at the University of Dayton, but bringing together people from different national, racial, and religious backgrounds sometimes can be difficult, even in a welcoming community.

At the symposium Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus, held Jan. 23-25, 2018, the Alumni Chair in the Humanities invited students, faculty, and staff from all parts of the globe to share stories about their experiences at home and on campus in hopes of strengthening the University’s inclusive excellence.
