*What's unique about how UVic uses these 4 big questions?

The 4 big questions that we use to frame UVic’s Leading Edge are not unique to UVic; they are universal philosophical questions that promote self-discovery.

What is unique to UVic is the way we have interpreted these 4 big questions to create an innovative curricular approach to experiential learning and career development.

When students explore their Leading Edge, they reflect on their UVic experiences using a curricular lens that is inspired by these philosophical questions. Through this process, students develop a sense of purpose, and a plan forward, that draws on their hands-on academic and co-curricular experiences.
