Our university’s patron saint, St. Jerome is perhaps best known for being a translator. While we are not all called to translate works into Latin, I think we are all increasingly called to the work of translation. Outside of the narrow context of foreign languages, translation can more broadly refer to the action of transferring, conveying, or moving something from one place, position, or person to another. St. Jerome’s as a university must translate our collective work in ever more directly comprehensible ways. In its substance, then, this plan provides several distinct “acts of translation."
