American Dream: A Living Room Conversation

Wednesday, January 27, 2021
2:00PM to 3:00PM

American Dream: A Living Room Conversation

Living Room Conversations offers a simple, sociable and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships. Typically, 4-7 people meet in person or by video call for about 90 minutes to listen to and be heard by others. This conversation is focused on the American Dream.

Generally speaking, opportunity gap refers to inputs (the unequal or inequitable distribution of resources and opportunities), while achievement gap refers to outputs (the unequal or inequitable distribution of educational results and benefits). Since early in America’s history, the American dream was the belief that anyone in this country (including immigrants) could make it if they worked hard enough. Some people believe this has always been an illusion, while others point to it as a legitimate heritage of our country.

Similar differences in perspective exist today: Is the American Dream alive and well or do the realities of today’s American economy and socio-political structure hamper certain groups of people so they cannot achieve what others might? What do you find inspiring about your personal American dream? Different perspectives on this issue are rarely explored — and we hope you have fun doing so in this conversation!

UNC System Presidential Scholar Information Session

Thursday, January 28, 2021
6:00PM to 7:00PM
https://northcarolina-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMrc-yvqjstH9c0ytiTD4KRuPq4JvUGgDDj

UNC System Presidential Scholar Information Session

The Presidential Scholars are recent graduates of a UNC System institution who serve a one-year appointment in the President’s Office. Working closely with high-ranking university officials, they provide a wide range of professional functions. Through this immersive opportunity, scholars explore the inner workings of the UNC System. They develop a keener understanding of how higher education has transformed North Carolina’s economy and why it is critical to our state’s future. 

Largely self-directed, this position lends itself to UNC System graduates who are motivated, intellectually curious, and not afraid to take risks.  Scholars interact regularly with the president, senior leadership, and members of the Board of Governors and will work to research, write, and implement policy.  While they must tackle daily responsibilities, Presidential Scholars will also encounter unique opportunities, and they should be ready to assume additional projects as they arise.

Learn More About This Paid Opportunity, The Application Process, and Listen To Current Presidential Scholars Speak About Their Experience
