Every year approximately 1,200 Dominican University members participate in an all-day symposium dedicated to study, and the celebration of the University’s motto, Caritas et Veritas (love and truth). The McGreal Center is a department of Dominican University where we participate every year in the Caritas/Veritas Symposiums. At the 2014 symposium, the Center shared with the University Community how “Team McGreal” lives the Caritas of our Motto:
Caritas in community requires respect for every person. When people come to work in the McGreal Center, we agree to respect one another. “Team McGreal” is a diverse team. We are an intergenerational group: our ages range from 19 to 80 years old. We represent various ethnic and racial groups, learning styles and religious traditions. Each one of us has a distinct personality! And we all work hard to practice the common belief that respect is the foundation for Caritas in community.
