“Love thy neighbor. This ancient command becomes almost impossible when thy neighbor is different or other than oneself. One of the things that the Arts and Sciences can do is to enable a student to 'other' him or herself enough to bridge the gap of difference.”
—Rev. G. Ronald Murphy, S.J.
Professor, Department of German
