What People are Saying

In an increasingly polarized world, [Perspectives] brings students together to explore their own values and better understand the values of others...I hear regularly from my students that [Perspectives] has helped them to have more productive conversations with others about a variety of important topics, even when they may disagree.

College Professor

I have a much clearer outlook on the world and the people I interact with. I am much more open to conversing and hearing both sides of a disagreement now.

College Student

Teaching at the only university in the world for deaf students, Open Mind has been an indispensable resource in teaching my students that listening goes beyond hearing.
