Unity Day:
Our Stories, Our World

Stockton University
February 5, 2019

“As a university, we will continue, from orientation to graduation, to build a culture where we respect and care for each other.”

President Harvey Kesselman, Aug. 8, 2018

Since its founding, Stockton University has promoted civic learning and fostered an environment that values civil debate, critical thinking and multiple points of view.

Unity Day is a campus-wide effort to study, discuss and better understand the world in which we live.and the people with whom we share it.

It is an opportunity to listen, learn and talk with people of different cultures, genders and points of view.

Come listen to the stories.

Come join us for the conversation.
