University of the Ozarks is a campus of amazing people and dynamic diversity.
What we learn from one another on this campus is the power of our diversity
and the glory of our differences. What we learn from one another is
the grace of our individual uniqueness and the blessing of our mutual
My wish for this Thanksgiving is that we respect
who we are and who others are. My wish is that we praise one another
for our differences, and that we learn from one another through our
differences. My wish is that we become brothers and sisters in shared
word and positive action. My wish is that we remain more righteous than
self-righteous, more conciliatory then contentious.
We need one another at Ozarks. I hope we trust one
another, depend upon one another, and believe in one another. I hope
we are a campus of diversity with a goal of understanding, and I hope
our compassionate understanding is a shared truth among us.
I know of no better place for these hopes and wishes
to grow and prosper than within each one of us and throughout our campus.
That is my Thanksgiving prayer.
Enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving with your loved
ones and friends.
Dr. Rick Niece
