This symposium provided an opportunity to gather on campus to learn and to educate each other on the importance of global awareness. All of you will agree with me that this is an important moment in history. Recent and repeated attacks on the diverse nature of the global community should not deter us. Rather they should embolden efforts to continue to create a diverse and inclusive community. By its very nature a university campus demands that its members challenge the dictatorship of ignorance.
Global and intercultural consciousness are at the heart of the University of Dayton’s mission. Two years ago, in his inaugural address, President Spina stated that “intercultural excellence” is a must. It was and remains a timely message and calls for a paradigm shift. People from diverse backgrounds must be respected, and not just tolerated.
