2017 Student Summit on Social Mobility
Join us for our second ADP/TDC Economic Inequality Initiative Student Summit on Social Mobility!
When: Saturday March 25, 2017 at 9:00 AM -to- Sunday March 26, 2017 at 3:00 PM ET
Where: Keene State College, Main St. Keene, NH 03435
This event, coordinated by students, staff, and faculty from Keene State College and Mount Wachusett Community College, will provide opportunities for students across the Northeast region to participate in a Student Policy Summit, hear expert perspectives on social outcomes of economic inequality from multiple disciplines, and network with their peers.
Over two days, summit participants will learn and deliberate about social mobility – how children, adolescents, and young adults can get on track to access economic independence and whether interventions during childhood can influence outcomes in adulthood. Participants will ask “what if” questions about factors that promote or impede success at different life stages and will also examine the economic value of graduating high school and pursuing higher education.
Institutions may register up to 20 students each. All undergraduate students must be registered with an advisor from their institution. Requests for additional students may be made by contacting the event coordinators at 978-630-9435. A registration fee of $80/participant will be due before the event.
