Faculty and staff members from St. Lawrence were among the presenters at the Association of American Colleges and Universities' Fourth Biennial Diversity and Learning Conference, "Education for a World Lived in Common."

Vice President of the University and Dean of Academic Affairs Grant Cornwell '79 was part of a panel in a plenary session on "Global Citizenship and Transglobal Identities," in which presenters described how understandings of citizenship were transformed by personal journeys. Professor of English and chair of Global Studies Eve Stoddard was among those presenting at a session on "Maps and Frameworks: Vantage Points on Globalization," which examined how maps of the world reflect the purposes for which they are made and the positionality of the maker.
