USD Virtual Series Connects Toreros to What Matters

The challenges presented by COVID-19 have impacted seemingly every aspect of our daily lives, including how we come together as a campus community. In advance of the 2020-2021 academic year, The Office of Admissions, along with a coalition of campus representatives, developed a series of virtual sessions focusing on what it means to belong at USD. These informative discussions help connect all Toreros to the core values that make USD an innovator in Catholic Higher Education.

USD in the Community: John Loggins, Director of Community Engaged Learning and Maria Silva, Director of Neighborhood & Community Engaged Partnerships discuss USD's commitment to being an "anchor institution" and engaging with the wider world through its proximity to the US-Mexico border.

Contemporary Catholic University: Dr. Michael Lovette-Colyer, Assistant Vice President for University Ministry, and two current USD students discuss USD's contemporary Catholic identity and how Toreros find their place at USD through a commitment to Mother Rosalie Hill's vision of "beauty, goodness and truth."

Changemaking in Action: Focusing on USD's identity as a Changemaker Campus, Dr. Mike Williams, Director of the Changemaker Hub, and three current USD students share about how USD creates a Torero community rooted in local and global service, innovative solutions and empathetic leadership.
