Saint Louis University

April 3 - April 9, 2016

The Sixteenth Annual Sam and Marilyn Fox Atlas Week program will be held the week of April 3 - 9, 2015. One of the main goals of the Atlas Program is to increase awareness of the global issues that confront us today in an effort not only to promote discussion, but also to inspire and inform action. It focuses on what we as global citizens can do to contribute to a better life for all people now and in the future. The Atlas Program is unique in that for one week of the year, it brings together members of the University community to focus on the global challenges that confront us in the 21st century.

The theme for the 2016 Atlas Program is "Reaching Across Borders: Embracing Our Global Community."

Atlas Week will open with a Kick-Off event on Sunday evening, April 3rd. The Annual Interfaith Prayer Service will be held on Monday, April 4th in St. Francis Xavier College Church. The program will conclude on Friday, April 8th with the Parade of Nations and the Billiken World Festival.
