Harvard Researcher to Talk Mobility and Equality

Nathaniel Hendren, assistant professor of economics at Harvard University, will discuss "Intergenerational Mobility and Equality of Opportunity in the United States" at 2:00 PM, Thursday, Oct. 2, in the College of Health and Human Services, room 159.

Hendren’s talk is sponsored by the University’s Project Mosaic, a social science research initiative. The Harvard researcher is a member of the Equality of Opportunity Project, funded by the National Science Foundation, the Lab for Economic Applications and Policy at Harvard, the Center for Equitable Growth at Berkeley and the Arnold Foundation.

The goal of the Equality of Opportunity Project is to document and understand the patterns of intergenerational mobility and equality of opportunity in the United States, with the long-run aim of informing government policy on improving economic opportunity for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

University to Host Mass CPR Training

UNC Charlotte will host a mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training exercise for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM in the Student Activities Center (SAC). The training is designed to increase the number of people on campus who know how to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest. Each training session will last for 30 minutes.

This is the second year the University’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety has partnered with Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic) to promote a mass CPR training. Last fall, over 250 students, faculty and staff learned hands-only CPR at the event. EH&S hopes to increase that number to 350 or more. Medic personnel will teach participants proper hand placement and how to perform compressions on a CPR manikin. Participants will be able to ask questions and learn the importance of quick action during a cardiac arrest.
