2018-19 Academic Theme: Living in Community
The theme for 2018-19 is Living in Community. Communities are more than a place to live; they can be groups of individuals with shared principles. As such, communities help shape our identity and inform our values and behaviors. While no two communities are alike, all possess shared attributes in order to function.
What does it mean to live as part of a community? What connects members of a community, and what separates us from each other? How do we create communities that are good for everyone?
