Dr. Ellen Lagemann invites undergraduate students to a conversation very germane to your experience, about expectations surrounding college attendance. Dr. Lagemann proposes a discussion of questions such as Why are you in college? Should all people go to college? Does going to college entail special responsibilities you owe to your families? your society? anybody else? This is a unique opportunity to think about your college experience from a new perspective. Dr. Lagemann is a leading Harvard historian of education and a nationally known expert on education research.
