The Ethos Project is the bridge - the bridge between the “now what?” and the “let’s do”. The Ethos Project in Boise aims to bring the voices of undergraduate students at Boise State into the light of this community, so professors and respected peers can listen to these amazing humans, advocating for real problems in this world. The Ethos Project intends to do what it was named for: give these students a chance to present their ethos, their voice, on a subject of great importance to them and the society as a whole. The Ethos Project has been created to help bring these innovative ideas out of the bleak four-walled classroom and into the real world, where they have a chance to create significant change. In turn, uniting ourselves on this beautiful campus and within the community as a whole. Now, you may be asking yourself, "What exactly does Ethos mean?", well buckle in for a philosophical joy-ride! The term 'Ethos' is part of a group of 3 words known to be Aristotle's 'three artistic proofs', Ethos, Logos, and Pathos. Ethos refers to the character of an individual, their credibility, and their voice. We, The Ethos Project team, are hosting a symposium, TED talk style event, at Boise State, March 14th. This event is the foundation for our speakers to create their ethos, and to act on a change they would like to see in this community. -- If you would like to learn more about the Ethos Project and its inception, follow this link to our website! http://ethosprojectboise.com
WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of Boise State Students who care about the voices of our friends and colleagues here on campus. We have all been in a classroom where we have been emotionally moved by our fellow terrans, in such a way, that we cannot bear to allow their voices to remain dormant, and unheard, in the classroom. We are here to create an event that elevates those student’s voices. We're creating a medium in which students have the ability to express their ideas and turn their dreams into tangible reality.
