The unifying power of this event, courtesy of a traditional healing practice, also reflects Taylor’s University’s role as a facilitator and advocator for global connectivity and cultural appreciation. We are committed to being more than just an education institution, striving to be a bridge to the world, as evident in our diverse and vibrant international community.”
