Film Screening: Most Likely to Succeed

Tuesday April 25th
100 Campbell Hall

Join us for a screening of this award-winning film and an evening of dialogue about what matters most for students today.

Most Likely to Succeed’s worldwide campaign to re-imagine education. The acclaimed film offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of- if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Greg Whiteley, the film has been an official selection of two dozen of the world’s top film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca and AFI DOCS. It’s been featured at leading conferences on education, including ASU/GSV, SxSWedu, Harvard/GoldmanSachs, and NewSchools Venture Fund. Audience members call it the most compelling film ever done on the topic of school. In the past year, more than 2,300 communities have booked a screening of Most Likely to Succeed.

The purpose of this event is to foster meaningful discussion among educators, administrators, parents, and students about how current obstacles can be overcome and steps toward change can be taken on a local level. Born out of these conversations is a community-wide commitment to moving forward; transformational initiatives are undertaken and real change is ignited. This event is open to the public. Please visit for more information about the film and movement.
