Values to Action: Preparing College Students to be Positive Changemakers in the Global Society
The Jon C. Dalton Institute on College Student Values has focused on issues related to values, ethics, and character in college student development for over two decades. Thanks to a generous gift from the John Templeton Foundation, the 22nd annual Dalton Institute will continue this tradition by focusing on the role of colleges and universities in promoting social entrepreneurialism.
The 2012 Dalton Institute, taking place in Tallahassee, FL on February 2nd-4th, will examine higher education’s role in helping students to transform their visions for a better world into practical strategies for making a positive difference with their lives. The Institute program will review what leading colleges are doing to engage students in the development of social capital and how higher education can be more effective in promoting personal and social responsibility during the college years.
