Event Details

Join us for "Ideas on Tap," our bimonthly series of pint-sized conversations about big ideas. On Monday, January 13th, we'll host a community conversation about the cost of higher education. With student debt, contingent faculty, rising tuition, admissions scandals, and low unemployment rates, is a college education still worth it? Let’s discuss the value of a degree in the humanities and explore alternatives to the classic liberal arts education. Does higher education still have the power to fix social and economic inequality? We will assess the current academic landscape in New Hampshire and the future of higher education.

Cost is $15 per person and includes appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink) in the relaxed atmosphere of the Area 23, which has generously provided full use of their space for this event. Please RSVP by January 8.
