Critical Examination of Our Times: The State of Race on the University of Dayton Campus January 26-28, 2016

Wednesday, January 27

Time: 7 p.m. — 8 p.m.

Location: KU Ballroom

Keynote Speech by Interim Provost Paul Benson

In light of growing national concern about racial discrimination and institutionalized injustice, communities and institutions across the country are taking steps to engage in critical dialogue about challenges of racism in America. Such dialogue is especially important for universities. Given the University of Dayton’s mission to link learning and scholarship with leadership and service and the Marianist educational philosophy of educating for service, justice, and peace through the building of community, the Africana Studies minor and organizing committee have designed a symposium to study the history of race relations at UD, to examine national trends and attitudes, and to outline ways in which the University can build a more inclusive campus community that is genuinely respectful and welcoming of every one of its members.
