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.

Gallery to Display Works by Local Printmaker

"Passages," an exhibit featuring work from local printmaker Adrian Rhodes, will be displayed through Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Student Union Art Gallery. A free reception with the artist will be from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, Thursday, Sept. 25.

Artwork in the exhibit explores internal conflict as reflected in the tension between rigid structural forms and organic, intuitive mark making.

"I am interested in studio practice as a way to question-I am interested in the act of making," said Rhodes. "I don’t try to illustrate an idea, rather I let process guide the piece and find meaning in the method used to create it."
