What is The Big Q Blog?

Monday, Mar. 14, 2011

The Big Q invites you into a conversation about the big questions college students face in their own lives. Starting March 28, every Monday we will post a short description of an ethical decision students face in college—that group project where one of the members didn’t do her fair share; the roommate who has passed out after a night of drinking; the choice about whether or not to have sex without marriage or even without love. 

Each of the following days, you can read comments from students, parents, student life professionals, and members of the Ethics Center staff. We want to know what you think as well, so use our comments feature.
"The Big Q" is part of a larger social media campaign, which includes a video contest with a $500 prize, weekly polls, and a Facebook page. The project was developed by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University.  Founded 25 years ago, the Ethics Center works with students, faculty, and professionals in many different fields to understand the ethical issues in people's lives and to develop practical tools for dealing with them.
