LORAS COLLEGE AND HUMAN DIGNITY

Human Dignity

The Loras College community desires to demonstrate strong moral leadership by making clear our position on diversity. Loras College condemns in the strongest terms the events and actions that took place recently in Charlottesville, Virginia as well as any act of hate, neo-Nazi allegiance, or white supremacy. We are all God's children and are therefore all equal in God's eyes.

As a Catholic college, we are called upon to be particularly attentive to the rich variety of people in the world. We seek to foster dialogue that will promote understanding, cooperation and respect. We value ecumenism, and collaboration among all people. In every dimension of what diversity entails, human dignity must always be maintained.
