University Dialogue 2007

We Hold These Truths

John Dewey, writing 118 years ago, reminded us that, "Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife." As teachers and learners in a public university, we believe it is imperative that all of us renew our understanding of Democracy as both an ideal and a work-in-progress. We hope this year's University Dialogue will be a valuable tool for that renewal.
