Recognizing the Rockefeller Center's Student Program Assistants

In this series, the Rockefeller Center features our Student Program Assistants, student staff who contribute significantly to the success of the Center’s events, programs, and activities.

The Rockefeller Center student staff are an integral part of the Center’s daily operations. Each term, these students share their talents and skills in a variety of ways, from managing our social media platforms, to facilitating student discussion groups, to photographing our events, to carrying out the multiple tasks involved in the logistics of our programs and events. Without the exceptional work carried out by these students, many of our programs would not yield the same impact for participating Dartmouth students or community members.

The tragic events that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri this past year have incited a complex discussion about socioeconomic issues that are now at the forefront of national debate. Many agree that more conversations and changes need to happen, but where does one start?

Much of today’s political discourse features debate over the scope of government authority, especially as it pertains to regulation of individual liberties. While some believe that government holds the constitutional authority to restrict individual expression and privacy, others contend that these are natural rights that the government cannot regulate. How should our government interpret the scope of its constitutional authority over individual rights in the context of today’s society?
