We are excited to announce the theme that will guide our programs, blog, and more throughout March and April: Socioeconomics and Viewpoint Diversity. By engaging with the unique challenges and diverse perspectives among those from different socioeconomic backgrounds, universities can further expand ideological diversity, improve scholarship and research, and decrease misconceptions about class-centered issues.
We’ll explore this theme through some exciting upcoming programs. In a few weeks we’ll host Designing High School for Upward Mobility in conversation with Ian Rowe of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), to be followed by more panels with exciting scholars and Member Spotlights. Our student affiliate programming continues with Is “Wokeness” A Religion?, which explores intersections of religion, anti-intellectualism, and virtue-signaling. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more!
