Carleton Connects: Anita Chikkatur and solving social problems in Minnesota

15 February 2024

Who better to investigate and solve social problems than the people most affected by them? Join educational studies professor Anita Chikkatur for a conversation about ways that students, parents, and educators in Faribault, MN and elsewhere have learned about and pushed for change in their own increasingly diverse communities.

This event took place on February 8, 2024.
