We must tell a more truthful story about the University’s origins in and for a civilization based on human bondage.


We must join with descendants of people enslaved by our founders and with our town’s African American community to recognize their contributions to Sewanee’s history.


We must serve as an incubator of innovative teaching and research tools and programming to confront and repair slavery’s racist legacies.


We must establish the University of the South as a leader in the global movement to confront and reckon with higher education’s indebtedness to slavery.

Our Mission

We seek to gather and give a more complete historical account of this university, the town of Sewanee, and all its people — one that sheds light on how slavery and its legacies have marked our history and that acknowledges the contributions and sacrifices of all who have shaped Sewanee’s past and present.

Our Vision

We undertake this mission to foster a more inclusive Sewanee community defined by justice and equity and a commitment to live according to the vision of collective harmony, truthfulness, and mutual respect expressed in our motto Ecce Quam Bonum.
