Courageous Conversations

There is a growing story in America telling us that we are isolated, that we don’t talk to each other anymore, that all we do is call each other out on social media, and that we are destroying the art of conversation and the country along the way.

 

The story tells us that this crisis is even more acute in higher education.

 

We partnered with Bridging The Gap, Oberlin College, and Spring Arbor University to see just how bad it is. We did see that there are certainly serious problems within campus culture but the priceless lesson we took home is that students want something more, they are ready for it and if we invest in them they will turn this country around.

We hope you enjoy watching our documentary film about the process below. You can also read more about Bridging The Gap in USA Today and Philanthropy.com
