The Global Engagement Office, in partnership with Lloyd International Honors College, is hosting a Keker First Year Common Read Capstone Conference for 150 first-year students this week. The conference will serve as a culminating experience for “Where Am I Wearing” by Kelsey Timmerman (the 2015-16 Keker First Year Common Read). The event will bring students face to face with where Greensboro meets the global apparel industry.
Day One will take place at Revolution Mill, a former textile mill-turned-event space. Activities will include a World Cafe interactive discussion, panel on engaging public history from textile workers’ perspectives, presentation on global apparel industry, and keynote speakers from members of the Cone family. Day Two will focus on engaging students in the community.
