The Compelling Questions We All Face
The Campus Theme program facilitates and coordinates a host of events, lectures, and discussions throughout the year centered around an enduring and ultimate question of human experience — a fresh question each academic year. Events are open to the general public. Explore current and past themes here.

2011–2012 Campus Theme: What Is Community?
Throughout the 2011–2012 academic year our campus explored community from a variety of perspectives. We heard from civic leaders, educators, journalists, and activists. We took up the topic in our institution's biannual magazine, the North Parker. We were inspired, challenged, and left with a lot of food for thought.
