The transformative nature of travel

Antisthenes said it: “To the wise man, nothing is foreign.” The Greek philosopher’s aphorism is the lived reality in academe, where scholarly and educational connections of all kinds build bridges across continents.

On the cover: Signposts on the De Pere campus align the St. Norbert College experience in its global context. A place of scholarship and growth like this liberal arts environment inevitably draws from, and contributes to, a world of discovery. It’s a place we call home, yes. But we are both grounded and inspired by a sense of where we have come from, and where we yet might go.
