To better defend U.S. interests and more effectively address global unrest, we must foster greater mutual understanding. Educating international students is one of the most effective ways to do that. Rather than allow shifts in the global education marketplace to determine who studies here, the United States must proactively seek to educate a more globally and economically diverse population.

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.
