The information below is taken from Ask Big Questions and explores the importance of questions. ABQ releases a new “big question” each month to encourage and promote dialogue, self-reflection and community.
Can we change the world through better conversation?
We believe we can.
We don’t have many opportunities today to develop relationships with people of different backgrounds who may hold different viewpoints. When we have those opportunities, we are able to see beyond our differences to discover what we have more deeply in common. By having conversations around life’s “Big Questions,” we can create understanding among people on campus, in our communities, and around the world.
“Big Questions” are concerned with the topics that matter to all of us, regardless of our religious traditions, cultural heritage, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and personal or political beliefs. Together, through these conversations, we can understand each other, understand ourselves, and make the world a better place.
November’s question* is, “How do we decide who to vote for?” Read the responses of college students across the country via ABQ’s blog.
