In a world over-saturated with information and misinformation, it is crucial for students to develop a keen eye for truth, to challenge the dubious assertions of an uncertain time, and find an independent, authentic, and eloquent voice to engage with the world around them, and fulfill their civic responsibilities to a nascent democratic society.
