The perfect mission statement

51JzpEqFEnL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_“We aspire to graduate global citizens, individuals knowledgeable of other cultures, aware of the issues threatening the planet and its inhabitants, and willing to use their education to go forth and make a positive difference in the world. To this end, we will create a campus climate that welcomes students from every nation, celebrating and learning from their distinctive cultures, mindful that student exchanges break down walls that divide us. Through reasoning together and¬†shared experiences with people of difference, on campus or through Study Abroad, our students will discover their common humanity with others – and, in the process, acquire and spread the language of peace and understanding.”
