Events to Focus on Future of UC
With UC's budget crisis generating fee increases, layoffs, furloughs, and frustration, a group of faculty and staff members and students have organized a daylong teach-in to debate the issues and to provide a public forum for discussion.
Set for Wednesday, October 14, in Campbell Hall, the teach-in will begin at 3 p.m. and continue through midnight with panels and workshops held in nearby classrooms.
“It is both an educational and a political event designed to offer a positive road forward for the UC system and for education at all levels in California,” said Nelson Lichtenstein, professor of history and one of the teach-in organizers.
Two weeks later, a roundtable discussion at 4 p.m. on Thursday, October 29, will explore the future of graduate education in the humanities at UC. It is part of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center’s Future of the University series.
Faculty members will discuss graduate programs and initiatives that train students for a new intellectual, professional, and economic landscape.
The talk will take place in 6020 HSSB.
