Undocumented Immigrants in America: Access to Higher Education

Taken directly from the Parr Center for Ethics website:

Undocumented Immigrants in America:
Access to Higher Education

Public Discussion

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

In light of the legal battles over immigration policy reform, a panel of experts explores the ethical dimensions of the debate and aim to reframe the discussion by highlighting the range of viewpoints on immigration reform, specifically targeting state policy on access to higher education and the DREAM Act, as a springboard into a discussion that identifies the range of factors that must be considered when formulating a position on this issue.

The resulting dialogue will promote a deeper understanding of the ethical issues surrounding immigration and the question of human rights, and encourage rigorous discussion for future personal and public policy decisions.

This event is coordinated in conjunction with UNC’s first year student summer reading book selection,"A Home on the Field," by Paul Cuadros, Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. For a  further listing of related events  across campus this year, please visit:

Big Green Bus visits Carrboro

The Big Green BusThe Big Green Bus visits Carrboro
Monday, June 22 3-7pm

The bus will be parked here, a block from Weaver Street Market on Roberson Street, behind the Armadillo Grill and next to the Fire & Rescue Building.

Taking the all-American road-trip to the next level, 15 Dartmouth College students embark on a cross-country summer adventure to educate America about sustainability and green living. Dartmouth’s Big Green Bus, once a rag-tag creation of the university’s engineering and ultimate Frisbee communities, is unveiling a coach bus specially-converted to run on waste vegetable oil. This year’s bus has been transformed into a state-of-the-art “green” mobile classroom for sustainable living, suited for the more than 40 educational stops planned across the country.

For more information, see the Big Green Bus website.
