The theme for this year’s symposium is inspired by the Benedictine value of
Community Living, referring to the idea that we become who we are by
our relationships with others.
Saint Martin’s University invites educators from local colleges and
universities to a conversation about the role of academia in the global
community. We are thrilled to announce that our colleagues from Reitaku
University will be coming from Japan to join us for this conversation and to
present their work at the symposium.
