The Big Q
My roommate is loud when I'm trying to study. The person sitting next to me in my final was checking answers on her cell phone. The guy who took me to this party is too drunk to drive me home. Students confront ethical issues every day.
The Center's Big Q project provides a safe space--both online and on campus--for students to talk about these issues. Using social platforms like this blog, Twitter, Facebook, and Yik Yak, we get the conversation started. We also sponsor panel discussions, poetry slams, and other events to delve into the big questions students are asking.
