Bridging the Curricular and Co-Curricular: The Rockefeller Center Model of Civic Engagement
Unformatted Document Text:  Washington, DC. With more than 60 students currently enrolled in PBPL 5 this winter, we are expecting even greater interest in the First-Year Fellowship program. If budget considerations allow, we will seek to expand the program beyond the 13 students selected last summer. 4. Student Organizations, Discussion Groups, and Programs Every night of the week when Dartmouth College is in session, there is something going on at the Rockefeller Center. Student organizations and discussion groups come together each evening to discuss, plan, debate, organize, socialize (and eat). There are currently six active student groups supported by the Rockefeller Center—AGORA, First- Year Forum, Daniel Webster Legal Society, PoliTALK, Women in Leadership, and Rocky VOXMasters. A. AGORA Named for the ancient Greek marketplace where social policy was debated and political discussions took place, AGORA is the Rockefeller Center's informal Friday evening dinner discussion for Dartmouth students. Each Friday a diverse group of students converge on Rocky to eat food from favorite Hanover takeout spots and join the student- facilitated discussion. AGORA provides a relaxed forum that invites students to engage their peers in conversation and challenges them to listen, learn, and express their opinions. AGORA discussions include a wide range of issues: public policy, social justice, academia, health, law, and the environment – just to name a few. Topics are selected with student interests in mind, and run the gamut from local Dartmouth issues to those on the national and international stage. This year's dinner-discussion topics have included: Facebook stalking, marijuana legalization, College disciplinary rules and regulations, grading at Dartmouth, mental health at Dartmouth, the merits of changing the military structure and mandatory service, and corporate recruiting. 11
