American Dream: Dead or Alive?

A Student Debate on the American Dream: Hosted by the Democracy Summit

Wednesday, February 22, 2023
7:00pm – 8:30am
Filene Auditorium, Moore Building
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Clubs & Organizations, Lectures & Seminars

The Democracy Summit is pleased to host a student debate on the American Dream. The Democracy Summit, jointly convened by the Dartmouth Political Union, John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, will host several lectures & debates on the state of democracy from winter through fall 2023.

The American Dream is one of the enduring ideals of our nation. It holds that all Americans can achieve success through hard work and perseverance and thereby leave their children better off than they were. While some firmly believe that the American Dream is realizable, others question whether such socioeconomic mobility still exists today or has ever existed. The Dartmouth Political Union thus asks Dartmouth students: Is the American Dream dead, or is it alive?

Tickets are not required for this event. Seats are first-come, first-serve.
