University of La Verne is flying the flag at half mast in honor of the revered statesman Nelson Mandela. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, he led South Africa out of decades of apartheid, healing the nation and serving as a worldwide advocate of human dignity in the face of challenges ranging from political repression to AIDS.
Mandela was a formidable leader, accessing power through conciliation, compromise, civility and dignity. His values coupled with leadership and power of persuasion changed our world. As a University dedicated to the same values of diversity, inclusivity, community and civic engagement, we mourn his death and celebrate his life.
