Now more than ever

by Melinda Lantz | Nov 10, 2016

Posted Nov. 10 - Manchester University’s mission is more relevant and needed today than at any time in recent history.

Manchester University respects the infinite worth of every individual and graduates persons of ability and conviction who draw upon their education and faith to lead principled, productive and compassionate lives that improve the human condition.

We are an amazingly diverse community of teachers and learners. And we are deeply committed to inclusion and diversity.

We bring different faith traditions, political viewpoints, and personal experiences to the table. Some of us live lives of privilege and others at the margins. We would not be who we are without these differences and we treasure them. In the classroom, in our personal interactions, as we step out into our communities as clinicians, interns, student teachers, mentors and volunteers, we carry what we learn from each other into each new relationship and experience.

Within our diversity, because of this diversity, we know the significance of respecting the infinite worth of every individual, becoming persons of ability and conviction and improving the human condition. Now more than ever.
