          About This Event

          Summary

          The 24th Annual Joseph Taylor Symposium

          It Takes a City: Toward a Diverse and Humane Community

          Wednesday, February 27, 2013

          IUPUI Campus Center, 420 University Blvd.

          Presented by the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI in conjunction with the Department of Philosophy and Center for Service and Learning

          Dr. Joseph T. Taylor served as a Professor of Sociology from 1965 to 1983 and as the first Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI from 1967–1978. Dr. Taylor is remembered for his commitment to dialogue and diversity.

          The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium honors Dr. Taylor for his many contributions to the university and the community by hosting informed discussion on issues of concern in urban America. The Twenty-Fourth Annual Joseph T. Taylor Symposium is offered in celebration of all Dr. Taylor stood for during his lifetime and stands as a lasting legacy to his vision and life work.

          It Takes a City: Toward a Diverse and Humane Community

          Increasingly, we are witnessing a shift from our sense of community responsibility to a form of “hyper-individualism,” where individuals place self- interest first, above those of the community as a whole. The alternative, working together for a common good, facing problems as a community, and through mutual support and respect forging more lasting solutions, ensures that none of us must bear societal burdens alone.
