Add to Calendar 02/12/2021 12:00 02/12/2021 13:30 Campus Conversations Project: The Opportunity Gap

Trained student volunteers from the Campus Conversation Project will facilitate a discussion on the opportunity gap. This session is open to students, faculty and staff. No prior preparation is required, but come prepared to respectfully listen and share. Description of the topic: 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). America prides itself on creating the opportunity for all citizens to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.” We aspire to have a fair playing field and want every child to have the opportunity to succeed. There are strong indicators that we are not living up to our aspirations. Many communities and individuals are experiencing a tilted playing field. How can we respond?
