BGeXperience director speaks on why values matter

 An audience of faculty, staff and students from across the University gathered Oct. 12 to hear Dr, George Agich, the new director of BGeXperience, address a basic but complex question: Why do values matter?

The question is timely since Bowling Green has become fully immersed in values exploration this semester. For the first time since the inception of BGeXperience, all incoming freshmen were required to participate in the program, and faculty in courses across the disciplines are attempting to introduce an awareness in students of how values, though largely unspoken, are implicit in each field of study.

Agich explained his views about the importance of defining one’s values, both in a university setting and in life.

“For us as a society and in BGeXperience, one reason values matter is that values tell us what’s important. They tell us who we are and help define our orientation in life.”
