President Lehmann captured the spirit of the evening in his inaugural address when he noted, "To many, religious difference contributes to what divides us. Yet what I have learned through my work at the GTU is that religion, and specifically interreligious study in the context of a pluralistic community, can also provide a pathway that navigates through the treacherous landscape of our factious society."
