Dickinson College to Use Center's Big Q Materials

Monday, Sep. 19, 2011

In his convocation address kicking off the 2011-12 school year, Dickinson College President William G. Durden announced that Dickinson students would make use of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics' Big Q project on ethical issues in the everyday lives of undergraduates.  He said:

In addition to your initial reflections, within your first-year “neighborhood” you are going to be asked to consider a set of ethical questions that should be part of any superior American undergraduate education. The topics relate directly to thoughts and actions that define a citizen in our contemporary democracy. We hope you will engage in discussions about these questions in your residences and through informal conversation with your professors. There are ten of them in total, and they are offered to us by an innovative project—called The Big Q—at Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics.
