What Matters to Me and Why 2009-2010

What Matters to Me and Why is a program that encourages reflection about values, beliefs, and motivations. It aims to help students and others better understand the lives and inspirations of those who shape the University.

Presenters are encouraged to talk about choices made, difficulties encountered, and commitments solidified. They are also free to choose any other topic that fits their definition of "what matters to me and why."

Co-sponsored by the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics and the Office of Religious Life
