Letter from the President

Dear Loras Students,

Thank you for your participation in the Loras Legacy Symposium.

My colleagues and I fondly refer to this day as our favorite “academic holiday” of the year. I hope you will find a similar sense of enthusiasm and appreciation, as well.

Many of our students, staff, and faculty have invested a lot of hard work, time, and effort in putting forth a wide variety of projects, research, presentations, and creative talent to make this symposium possible.

This showcase of academic and co-curricular works provides an opportunity for all of us to learn from peers and mentors within our campus community. Further, as you experience varying aspects of the day’s program, it serves as a reminder as to how grateful we should be to part of such a vibrant and mission consonant institution.

To all who have submitted a project or planned a presentation of any type, I offer my sincere appreciation. We are blessed that you are willing to share your passions and talents with us. For all of us who are simply taking part in the day as an active learner and reflective thinker, I encourage you to consider putting forth your own submission for next year’s Legacy Symposium. Finally, please take the time to thank our students, faculty, and staff who shared their wisdom and creativity today.

On behalf of the entire Loras community, I am thankful for the excellent leadership and planning effort that our Legacy Committee provided. As such, please join me in expressing appreciation for Ms. Kathy Weber- Co-Chair, Ms. Erin McGovern- Co-Chair, Dr. Neely Farren-Eller, Dr, Biniv Maskay, Ms. Heidi Pettitt, Dr. Seungho Shin, Dr. Bryce Taylor, and Student Assistant Ms. Melissa Torres. Of course, I offer special thanks to Msgr. Barta ’52 for his unfailing generosity in sponsoring this amazing symposium.

Congratulations and best wishes for furthering your academic and co-curricular achievements!

Cordially,
James E. Collins (’84)
President

Tribute to Rev. Msgr. James Barta, PhD

Monsignor Barta is known for his many roles at Loras College—priest, counselor, psychology professor, department chair, academic dean, president, and regent. But his passion is teaching.

In Msgr. Barta’s presidential inaugural address, he talked specifically about the liberal arts in ways that resonate with the purpose of the Legacy Symposium. His words continue to inspire as we celebrate the accomplishments of scholarship and creativity exhibited today by the Loras College community.

“The liberal arts college looks for the enquiring mind to do away with ignorance. It builds libraries, it brings together an informed faculty, it provides experiences in the hope of stimulating the mind.

It insists upon logic in formal classes and in the writing and the discussion of students. It alerts the student to the psychodynamics that influence their thinking. It gives them the rules of debate and other verbal exchange. It teaches them the scientific method to help separate conjecture from reality—all in the effort to reduce error.

The liberal arts college required a breadth as well as a depth of experience, insisting that its people taste of various cultures, learn of various opinions, learn to relate to people with a wide variety of ideas to everyone’s enrichment and advantage—all in the effort to avoid narrowness.

[…]

A liberal education is something much more than the cultivation of technological expertise. It is also the cultivation of that social sensitivity which brings the warmth and color to life. It is the explicit profession that we are social by nature, and incomplete without others. It is the expression of respect for others, manifesting itself in generosity, not the selfishness which enslaves us.”

Msgr. James Barta (’52)

Attendee Information

Harassment & Safety

Loras College and the Legacy Symposium strives to be a community demonstrating the highest standards of the Catholic intellectual tradition and welcoming all people into a dialogue to promote core values of truth, respect, responsibility, excellence, and service. The Loras Legacy Symposium is committed to providing a safe and productive environment for everyone present at the meeting. We promote an open atmosphere of critical inquiry and academic conversation. As a Catholic college, we are called upon to be particularly attentive to the rich variety among the people of the world. We seek to foster dialogues that will promote understanding, cooperation and respect.

In every dimension of what diversity entails, human dignity must always be maintained. Loras Legacy prohibits intimidating, threatening, or harassing conduct during the symposium. This policy applies to speakers, staff, volunteers, and attendees. Symposium participants violating these rules may be asked to leave at the discretion of Symposium and College leadership. Harassment will not be tolerated in any form and includes the following:

  • Offensive comments related to ethnicity, religion, disability, age, economic status, physical appearance, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome attention.

Many different types of inappropriate behaviors, whether written, verbal, or physical, can affect the personal and professional well-being of people in the workplace, especially when people misuse their positions of power and influence. Research confirms that these inappropriate behaviors have the highest impact on women and underrepresented demographic groups.

Awareness & Creating a Respectful Environment

Know your Policies
By adopting this Code of Conduct, Loras Legacy Symposium has established clear and specific expectations and norms to promote the best Symposium climate possible. All students, staff, faculty and attendees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the policies. The best way to promote a positive change is to be able to identify inappropriate behaviors and know how to respond. Bring these policies to the attention of symposium organizers.

What constitutes inappropriate behavior?
As norms and expectations change, we expect changes in what IS considered acceptable behavior. Issues of behavior and bias are often difficult to talk about, but the most productive discussions happen when we share common goals. Have an open discussion with your staff, your faculty, and your fellow students about our ultimate goals as a college and why safe and inclusive symposia are important. Be explicit in your discussions about what is or is not appropriate behavior and be open to discussions on differences in opinions.

DuUnite!
You hurt one, you hurt all. We all need to be active participants in creating an inclusive environment. Think about ways you can send the message that the best environment for sharing our work is one that is fair, equitable and welcoming to all participants. There are many ways to promote discussions, engage in diversity-focused activities, and be proactive—make a positive change for our community.

Reporting an Incident of Harassment or Inappropriate Behavior

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If you are being harassed, notice someone else being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Loras Legacy staff, who can work with appropriate Society leadership to resolve the situation. We value your attendance, and want to make your experience as productive and stimulating as possible.

We ask that you notify Kathy Weber or Erin McGovern, Co-Chairs of the Legacy Committee, immediately with any concerns so they may be addressed. Should you need to contact us in writing, please email Kathy.Weber@camillassoc.com or Erin.McGovern@camillassoc.com. We look forward to everyone enjoying the symposium.
