I am a great admirer of the way Ask Big Questions helps students of all backgrounds to reflect together on questions we all share, and to build community by engaging our diversity. Ask Big Questions and IFYC share a common mission, and I am proud to call ABQ a partner.

Ask Big Questions is doing vital work to help American colleges and universities restore the soul of higher education. Through community conversations about Big Questions, students develop the habits of the heart that can help renew campus life and our larger civic fabric.

Our colleges and universities are essential training grounds for young adults to enter into their lives as citizens. But they often need help to do that work. Ask Big Questions is an outstanding initiative to aid colleges and universities do their transformative work.

By the end of the conversation, I felt like I could carry on an interesting conversation with any of the people sitting before me. Because of that openness, we students were able to discard the 'prove the other person wrong' card. It enabled us to access a much more important skill, one with which we are losing touch: listening, with the sole intent of understanding.
University of Toronto student
Ask Big Questions helped me to learn how to listen to others both inside and outside of my communities and truly inspired me to become a deeper, more understanding, more giving and more complex person.
