Born out of a commitment to collaborative service and learning, the purpose of the Mission Town Hall series 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.
