Reflect Examine what ideas and values are most important to you. Can you identify experiences, family stories, or traditions that shape these values? How do you speak about these ideas and values? What makes you feel like these ideas and values is being threatened? What is your culture and background that helped to shape them? Ponder how the following quote from American author and minister, Edward Everett Hale, might apply to you right now: "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." Learn Remain committed to engage in conversations with others who have had different experiences, ideas, and values. Listen not to refute or challenge but rather to understand. Embrace feelings of discomfort as growth and learning opportunities. As our country and the world continue to make important decisions about the future, we support critical thinking, respectful dialogue, and inclusive practices that promote equity. Together, we are Northcentral University, and part of our mission directs us to become contributors to our communities. This is best achieved when we feel responsible to, and for, each other.
