Mission Statement

The mission of the Hollybush Institute at Rowan University is to preserve and build on the legacy of the 1967 Glassboro Summit by promoting scholarly research, educational activities, and community outreach related to the history and practice of international dialogue to promote global security, peace, and the rule of law. Imbued with the “Spirit of Glassboro,” as President Lyndon Johnson called it, the Institute stands as a monument to cooperative, intercultural discussion. Grounded in the humanities values of historical inquiry, critical reasoning, empathy, and cross-cultural understanding, the Hollybush Institute builds bridges between the humanities and the arts and sciences to inspire innovative global thinking.
