President's Forum


President's Forum set for Sept. 10

Dr. James M. Harder, president of Bluffton University, will present the annual President’s Forum at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, in Founders Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Harder will offer perspectives on the start of a new academic year—Bluffton’s 114th—and describe several institutional initiatives for the year. This is also the 100th year since Bluffton adopted its longstanding motto, “The Truth Makes Free,” and the president will reflect on what that means in the context of a Bluffton education. He will conclude with thoughts about the university’s 2013-14 civic engagement theme, “Race and Ethnicity in America: Celebration, Struggle, Opportunity,” and Bluffton’s history in that regard.
