40 years later, the Consider staff endeavors to advance the mission of our founders by:
Equitably presenting a variety of perspectives to Consider readership in order to foster a greater understanding of differing views.
Choosing relevant topics that the University of Michigan community is craving to consider.
Sourcing a legion of student/faculty op-eds to showcase a diverse range of multifaceted viewpoints for every issue.
Consider is here to start the conversation. We hope you continue it.
