Students for Open Discussion Header
The purpose of this organization is to facilitate open discussion about complex worldly topics and encourage understanding between individuals with differing opinions. We want to create a positive environment where people can effectively communicate their views and listen to others. The goal here isn't to convince but to understand. With the polarization that's so prevalent in our country, and even the world, it's important that we can work to overcome our differences. We encourage students from all majors to join us and offer their views on a variety of topics such as abortion, global warming, and even artificial intelligence.
