"Might we take a core aspect of liberal education—the capacity to listen to and fully consider multiple points of views in order to derive new questions and new understanding—and apply it to how we build a true community? Can we hold, at the same time, seemingly immiscible ways of being, and ways of looking at the world, long enough to move forward together? I believe that at Haverford, we can."

—President Wendy E. Raymond
