A Message from Standifird: Civil Dialog

October 30, 2020

Dear Bradley Community,

With the Presidential election just around the corner, I want to reinforce the importance of civil discourse. I recently sat down with Brad McMillan, Bradley's Executive Director of the Institute of Principled Leadership in Public Service; Board of Trustee, alumnus and former Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood; and Student Body President Emma Hoyhtya, to discuss the importance of civility on our campus. I hope you will watch this video of our recent chat. Please take this discussion to heart and recognize how vital it is to remain open to other viewpoints and respect one another.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
