When individuals are not recognized, or don’t feel at home, or are unable to contribute as they might, we all suffer, we’re all weakened. We’re not as strong as we could be. Therefore, spending a day as you are doing is critical to Boston College. We are hoping to be a better institution the more and more we have conversations like this one.
University President William P. Leahy, S.J., at the second annual diversity summit
