Abstract

Globalization is a choice; inclusivity is also a choice. When you have privilege or power, you can choose what you like and what you don’t like. People tend to associate with what they value. That is fine; however, the problem exists in the question of “why do we value what we value?” I would argue that your values have been shaped by the media, false or incomplete historical narratives, and of course your upbringing. Therefore, your values have been skewed by factors like racism, white supremacy, simple stereotypes.

Comments

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.
