This fall, U100 students will be reading and discussing the One Book, One Campus title, Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich as well as related resources in order to compare the perspectives and interpretations of the concept of the American Dream from a variety of sources.

This panel presentation is an extension of the work the students are doing in their class, and an opportunity for them to discuss the issues in the book with leaders from the community in which they live and professors other than their own.

Please join us for a panel presentation followed by breakout sessions with the panelists. All U100 students will be attending this event, which is also open to the public. Due to the number of students attending the event, it will be held twice.
