Save the Date: Poder Latino at the School of Communication

Friday, September 16, 2016 | Media Innovation Lab at the McKinley Building

In partnership with the School of Communication and School of Public Affairs, the Spanish-language news channel NTN24 will record their weekly show Poder Latino in AU's state-of-the-art media facilities. The event will start at 3:30 p.m. and feature roundtable-style commentary from AU faculty.

This event will be held in Spanish. A limited number of students will be able to watch the show live from the studio. Space is limited, so RSVPs are considered a commitment to attend. More details and an event flyer will be forthcoming.


Save the Date: Presentation of Results from "Neighborhood Diversity and Well-Being: A Pilot of American University's DC Area Survey"

Monday, October 3, 2016 | TBD

Change occurs constantly in metropolitan areas. Yet there is surprisingly little research infrastructure to measure how people make sense of and react to those changes. In 2015, under the auspices of the Metropolitan Policy Center in its School of Public Affairs, American University launched the annual DC Area Survey (DCAS) to study neighborhood and resident well-being in the Washington, DC (DC) metropolitan area. At the presentation, researchers will share findings from the 2016 pilot survey, which focused on the experiences of DC area residents in two relatively new types of neighborhoods: Latino neighborhoods and “global neighborhoods.” More details and an event flyer will be forthcoming.
