2012 Dominican University Caritas Veritas Symposium

2012 Dominican University Caritas Veritas Symposium

 

The 2012 Caritas Veritas Symposium, “From Motto to Mission to Manifestation: Dominicans as Citizens of the World,” will build upon the success of and foundation laid by the 2010 and 2011 Caritas Veritas Symposia, which focused on our pursuit of truth and its relationship to love, and how truth and love lead to action. In the keynote address of the 2011 symposium, Claire Noonan reminded us that Dominicans are “a group of people who choose to make the whole world their family.” The 2012 Symposium will explore ways in which we strive to manifest our Dominican mission by building relationships across differences and physical and cultural borders to create communities of compassion and justice.
