Previous speaker forced to cancel

We are thrilled to announce that Bruce Sacerdote, the Richard S. Braddock 1963 Professor in Economics at Dartmouth College, will be stepping in as the distinguished speaker for the Hogan Lecture on March 28. 

While we were eagerly looking forward to hosting Francine Blau, she had to cancel her visit due to a personal emergency. 

Sacerdote brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, particularly in the realms of education and child development.

The topic of Sacerdote's lecture will be “Impacts of Neighborhood: Why Children Turn Out the Way They Do.” The lecture will focus on:     

  • Peer effects in education and child development: how do schools, classmates and location affect children’s academic performance (and later life outcomes)? 
  • College education: how do students decide to attend and what determines their academic performance? 

The lecture is scheduled to take place from 4-5:30 P.M. in Room G75. Following the lecture, a reception will take place in the Great Hall, allowing attendees to discuss and network. 

Those who have already registered are encouraged to maintain their registration and attend the lecture. If you want to newly register, see the QR code below.
