Event 1: A Student Panel Discussion


 Ivory Tower: A Topic of Discussion

On Wednesday, December 3 from 2:30 until 3:45, students from Communications 101 will offer their measured views on issues related to higher education, particularly as they pertain to the escalating price of college in the United States. With student debt exceeding $1.2 trillion, this is a matter of immediate concern to us all. Please come see these students as they participate in a moderated panel discussion about these issues and in response to the documentary film Ivory Tower.

Event 2: Student Action Forums

On Thursday, December 4 from 11:00 until 12:15 and then again from 12:30 until 1:45, students from Communications 101 will present action recommendations for the direction they would like to see higher education taking help their shared vision for our society. Recommendations will target higher education generally and Moraine Valley specifically. These group presentations are the results of several weeks of deliberative dialogue, research, and writing on this subject. Students, teachers, and administrators, and concerned community members are all encouraged to attend. This Action Forum event will invite audience members to voice their concerns, as well.
