Vincent D. Rougeau, Dean of Boston College Law School, will be the featured speaker at the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work 6th Annual Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture. Dean Rougeau will speak on "Reflections on Justice and Religious Diversity: Why Living Together Is Better than Living Apart."

Dean Rougeau is at the forefront of how religion, law, and multiculturalism intersect. He is a leader of a research group on global migration and cosmpolitanism as part of the Contending Modernites project, sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at Notre Dame.
