On April 12, 2017, the Office for Sustainability hosted the free screening of Most Likely to Succeed, an acclaimed documentary film offering an inspiring look at re-imagining the purpose of education.
Following the screening in the Fetzer Center, a panel discussion and a networking breakfast fostered meaningful conversations amongst educators, administrators, parents, students, and other stakeholders on how to overcome current obstacles and steps to take toward systemic change taken on a local level.
