Through a series of public forum discussions, Timothy Den Herder-Thomas opened up a dialogue on campus concerning major concepts on global citizenship, including: the idea of collective responsibility; confronting issues of race, class, gender, purpose; and, the impact of student consumption and lifestyle on their larger community. Students, faculty, and staff were further engaged in this dialogue through the campus newspaper in various articles reflecting on these issues. It was Timothy’s hope that this dialogue would foster more student, and a sense of common purpose and shared vision amongst the student body.
