Courage, Hope and Love: Honoring the Legacy of César Chávez

Dr. Miguel Martinez-Saenz

Associate Provost of Undergraduate Education and Student Support Services
St. Cloud State University
Scheduled Events:

Noon-12:30 p.m. - Silent march, begins at the entrance of Zumberge Library

1:00-2:00 p.m. - Keynote address by Miguel Martinez-Saenz
2:00-3:00 p.m. - Reception with keynote speaker

In recognizing, understanding, appreciating and celebrating the differences among people, Dr.Martinez-Saenz has educated and inspired others to understand their ethical responsibilities within the global community.

Dr. Martinez-Saenz earned his B.A. in religion from Florida State University and his M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of South Florida. In both his personal life and professional career, he has engaged students and fellow peers on the importance of multicultural education.  Similar to the vision of César E. Chávez, Dr. Martinez-Saenz has worked extensively in the building of community and promotion of social justice.

Dr. Martinez- Saenz will address the following two questions in regards to the legacy of César Chávez: First, are we willing to allow César Chávez to haunt us in ways that challenge us to reflect deliberately regarding the manner of our life? Second, is the academy a "community" that can produce people like César Chávez or, at a minimum, folks who can be engaged in the struggle?
