We will gather as Dominican higher education colleagues to see more clearly our interconnectedness with each other and all of creation.

Acknowledging repercussions of limited worldviews, come envision possibilities for justice, healing, and sustainability.

Collectively, we will listen with our hearts and minds to the voice of God through one another, responding with courage, reverence, and joy.
