Northwestern Believes (formerly known as This We Believe Northwestern) is based on the popular National Public Radio program, "This I Believe," where participants create and share short essays reflecting on what is most important in their lives... and why.

This three session series of mini-workshops guides Northwestern community members as we share our stories and find common values. By the end of our time in small groups of 4-6, participants will have crafted a short personal essay, or statement, about how their values have profoundly influenced the decisions that they make. In the spring quarter, participants will be able to share their stories at a community gathering of believers at NU. 

Check out a belief statement from a former participant.
