The Big Ideas is a monthly program focused on exploring pressing issues in society. Throughout each month, students can follow us on Twitter @gsu_leadership to learn more about the issue of the month. We will be posting information about the issue from a variety of perspectives to ensure that students get a nuanced understanding of the issue. Then, at the end of the month, students are invited to join us for a discussion about the month’s issues and an opportunity to brainstorm possible solutions to addressing the issue.
