How Can A Campus Be A Model Community?

Event Details

This question takes up President Aoun’s challenge from three years ago where he urged the campus to be a model for rather than a microcosm of society.  As this semester begins and as the university community is involved in an academic planning process, President Aoun has asked all of us to deepen our efforts to promote diversity on campus and to foster inclusion in Boston and the wider world. A panel of faculty, as well as staff from student and community affairs, will engage in a conversation with the audience on how a campus can be a model community.
