The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati are pleased for Mount St. Joseph University and its selection by CNN as the site of this week’s Presidential Town Hall with the President of the United States. Being selected for this honor recognizes the Mount as an outstanding institution of higher learning.
We wish to clarify that the agreement to schedule a Presidential Town Hall at the Mount on Wednesday, July 21, is between MSJ and CNN. All decisions about the event are being made by CNN and MSJ and do not involve the Sisters of Charity. CNN is utilizing the Mount’s facility and will make the decisions on attendance at the event, whose questions will be asked of the President, etc.
Mount St. Joseph University is one of five institutions we sponsor in the Greater Cincinnati area. Each institution has a different mission and is overseen by a separate governing board of trustees or directors. MSJ is an institution of higher learning. As such, its mission is to provide the opportunity and space for the free exchange and rigorous examination of information and ideas. It is committed to being a diverse and inclusive setting, respecting ideas across ideologies, ethnicities, races, and social backgrounds.
