Keynote Speech at Longwood University 'E Pluribus Unum' Symposium

It was a huge honor to be the Keynote Speaker at the 
Civitae Core Curriculum Symposium, E Pluribus Unum at Longwood University on November 14th, 2023. This year’s presentations at the Symposium included discussions on media consumption, the impact of AI on society and culture, algorithmic systems, Climate Change, and the American Civil War. It was a rich and inspiring event, made more significant by its location in Farmville, Virginia, a state with a complex history of race, democracy and Reconstruction following the American Civil War. Today, Farmville holds an important place in the history of the Civil Rights Movement having played a role in the landmark case, Brown vs. Board of Education.

The importance that Longwood University places on rational thinking and aesthetics in its approach to civic engagement is impressive. I believe that this is a critical aspect of creating a more livable, sustainable, and importantly, joyful world. Rational thinking and aesthetics can help us to connect with our communities, appreciate the beauty of our surroundings, and foster a sense of shared responsibility for the future.

President W. Taylor Reveley, IV, conceived of the Democracy-focused Civitae Core Curriculum at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, several years ago. "E Pluribus Unum" the Symposium, is a gathering of scholars and practitioners and students to discuss the common good and citizen leadership.

Longwood University's Civitae Core Curriculum is a unique and innovative approach to education that champions the value of the liberal arts and sciences in the 21st century. The curriculum is designed to help students think critically, solve problems creatively, and become engaged citizens.
