Description

Labor shortages. Rising poverty. Cultural divides. These are all outcomes related to the achievement gap. How do we address and overcome these social and economic issues as a community?

Join us to hear from a panel of experts on how they are helping Minnesota close the achievement gap, and learn what role you can play in improving educational opportunities in your area.

Christina Saunders, Executive Director of ACES nonprofit

Alvin Abraham, Dean/Executive Director of Dougherty Family College at University of St. Thomas

Lori Carrell, Chancellor at University of Minnesota Rochester

Moderator:

Art Rolnick, Senior Fellow at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota

Nonprofit Recipient:

The Common Good Breakfast Series contributes event proceeds to the nonprofit organization featured at each session. The nonprofit for this event is ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students), a nonprofit organization offering an out-of-school-time program that focuses on using sports as a hook to get kids excited about math and social-emotional learning. We’re pleased to support ACES.
