What is distinctive about Millennials? How do their personal and public values differ from those of previous generations? How will they shape the 2012 election and America’s future? On Thursday, the Berkley Center and the Division of Student Affairs are convening a panel discussion on “Millennials, Values, and America’s Future.” The event will feature authors Joshua Foer (Moonwalking with Einstein), who has appeared on The Colbert Report, as well as Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts (Harlem Is Nowhere) and Rev. Jim Wallis, a leading Evangelical. Student leaders from around the country will also be on the panel. The event will take place in Copley Formal Lounge from 2 to 3:30 p.m. You can find more information and RSVP here.
The event will follow on the release, earlier that morning, of the Millennial Values Survey, a groundbreaking poll of 18-24 year-olds on faith, values, and the 2012 election. You can RSVP for the release event, which will take place from 10:30-12:00 in the Fisher Colloquium (Hariri Building) here.
Both events are part of a nation-wide Campus Conversation on Values designed to engage the Millennial generation. You can join in the conversation by following these five different threads.
