The Great Questions

at Austin Community College?

Nearly half of US undergraduates attend community college.

Yet few community colleges offer discussion-based, Great Books courses as part of the core curriculum.

By asking the Great Questions, we mean to change that.

The aim of The Great Questions Project is simple: to provide all ACC students, regardless of major, the opportunity for early academic engagement with core-texts in discussion-based courses lead by faculty who are passionate about their success. Courses that revolve around a discussion model and offer core-text readings in lieu of textbooks help students of all age and ability levels develop the practice and skills needed to speak clearly, read carefully, reason effectively, and think creatively - giving them a solid foundation to build their academic careers, professional goals, and become engaged lifelong civic leaders. We firmly believe in the power of a community college education: to provide accessible and quality liberal arts education, ensuring that all can grow and prosper in our free society.
