The 2007 UCEA Convention theme, “Fostering Compassion and Understanding Across Borders: An International Dialogue on the Future of Educational Leadership” is consistent with the message given by the Dalai Lama in a recent address at the University at Buffalo (September 2006). In it, he said that, “the world has emerged from a century of bloodshed and violence, in part because education has failed to pay sufficient attention to inculcating values of the heart.” He called upon educational institutions “from kindergarten to the university to instill compassion and understanding in order to turn the 21st century into a century of dialogue.”
