The FFE wants to bring the natural and social sciences together, and believes it's totally possible. Through cross-disciplinary communication we can strengthen the weakness of each other, and create more sustainable, all-inclusive solutions for the world's problems.
Communication Studies, meet Statistics.
Mathematicians, meet the podium.
We should school the chemists in how to captivate an audience with their rhetorical ability, and, conversely, encourage the communication majors not to feel terror at the prospect of doing calculus. We should put the business students and ethicists together, come what may. We should introduce the physicist to the artist. This type of connection promotes and facilitates what pedagogical theorists call "deep learning," which is one central goal of education.
We all have our strengths; we all have our weaknesses. At the FFE, we don't deny any of the disciplines their worth. We want to distill the importance of each discipline, faith, and culture into a powerful mix. We want to dispel all bigotry and hate, and keep all that is good and inherently beautiful in all people, very strong and well. We appreciate the wisdom from all those who help others to learn, grow, and expand their humanist understanding. Never has mending ways with opposites been more important. This is the era to learn how to work together toward the betterment of all.
