"Studying Big History with my fellow faculty members at the Big History Summer Institute was an encounter with the sublime. My hope is that first-year students at Dominican will be awed by the conditions of possibility that allow for human existence as they contemplate the implications of the Big History narrative for the future of our planet. I believe that encouraging students to grapple with the big questions of Big History allows them an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of a Dominican education for their own lives."
