Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
Aly Sivji will discuss testing in Python. Tests ensure our program works as intended and that changes do not break existing functionality. However, these benefits are not free; we need to have a plan to write our application and a plan to test it.
Featuring acclaimed children's author and Benedictine Artist in Resident, Crystal Chan.
Crystal will share how she landed on a specific method of compassion-and its resulting commitment to realizing equality in this country. This type of compassion has impacted her activism, transformed her writing, and allowed her to hold and explore viewpoints that conflict with her own. She discovered how compassion healed relationships, fostered her own physical and mental health, and given her a glimpse of transcendence. Join us to learn how you can design a path for yourself.
A reception will follow the lecture. Free Admission and Open to the Public.

Join us to be inspired by the students' determination to sink their teeth deep into the heart of what makes compassion possible in this polarized world.
