Presenter: Nicholas Colangelo - Emeritus Director, Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education; Professor and Dean Emeritus, College of Education

American society and schools have an ambiguous relationship with exceptional intellectual talent.  This comes out in the language we use and policies regarding gifted education and gifted students.  We don’t have this same ambiguity with other areas of exceptional talent such as athletics and the arts. There is a tension between concepts of equity, elitism and intellectual talent.  The presentation will focus on the subtle and overt issues of anti-intellectualism and the messages we send to our very bright students.  

Cookies and Tea will be served before the Lecture. Parking: Iowa Avenue Parking Ramp
