Students at Dartmouth Discuss Republican Presidential Candidates at #econdebate Focus Group

On October 11, 2011, sixteen Dartmouth undergraduates participated in a focus group prior to and immediately following the Republican Presidential Debate at Dartmouth College. The panelists came from all walks of life and were selected in hopes of representing the diversity of the campus.

The group was joined by Professor Ron Shaiko, Senior Fellow and Associate Director for Curricular and Research Programs at the Rockefeller Center, who served as their facilitator for this focus group. The focus group began with a discussion of the students’ first political experiences, agents of political socialization, and political ideology.

Danielle Thompson ’97, Rockefeller Center Assistant Director, presented this special session of MLDP. The presentation opened with a broader look at the benefits the Rockefeller Center has afforded students pursuing public policy internships. Two students with former Rockefeller-funded internships presented briefly then answered questions.
The participants present had various levels of experience with LinkedIn – some people were signing up for the first time, and others were curious about how to better implement their LinkedIn accounts. One of the key features Ms. Thompson noted was that LinkedIn is an increasingly popular vehicle for showcasing one’s experience; a LinkedIn page has now become the Rockefeller Center’s preferred resume format.
