This election season, one thing seems clearer than ever: it’s hard to get a room of people to agree on anything related to politics. But on Saturday, September 22, 65 student activists from Northfield, Faribault, and the Twin Cities came together around a topic that everyone could support: political advocacy skills.

In a recent editorial about the achievement gap in the StarTribune, Northfield's TORCH (Tackling Obstacle, Raising College Hopes) was given a shout-out. Carleton and TORCH have a long-standing partnership in this work. With the help of Carls and Oles, this organization has made it possible for students in Northfield to raise the Latino graduation rate from 36 percent in 2004 to 100 percent in this past year.

On Saturday February 18th, Carleton students and faculty helped HealthFinders with a community gathering for input, as they open a new clinic for uninsured and low income individuals in Rice County. As part of Pamela Feldman-Savelsberg's Anthropology of Health and Illness course, students helped organize questions for the focus groups, which they will discuss in their end-of-term research papers. HealthFinders will then use the students' research to guide the creation of the new clinic.
