Mission Town Halls


Mission Town Halls

Born out of a commitment to collaborative service and learning, the purpose of the Mission Town Hall is to offer members of the Barry University community an informal opportunity to share their experiences and understanding of the university’s mission and core commitments. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to listen to the experiences others in the community and how it relates to their lives on campus.

Building Resilient Communities: Student Perspectives on Gun Violence

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to a discussion on the root causes of community and gun violence and its effect on communities and community members. This will include an opportunity to hear from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who were directly impacted by the recent shooting at their school. Time will then be given to engage in dialogue about factors contributing to school and other community violence, as well as share ideas on how to reduce violence and share resources.
