Dr. Caroline Hoxby, Professor of Economics at Stanford University, will speak about “Opportunity, Meritocracy, and Access to Higher Education” on Monday, December 2, at 3 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Student Community Center; a flyer is attached.

The Provost’s Forums lecture series was established in 2012 to make a significant contribution to our campus dialogue on a vital issue: what public universities should and can be in the 21st century. The presentations by our 2012–13 distinguished lecturers were of a very high quality, and I expect the same to be true of this year’s events.
It is my hope that a great many members of our community, broadly representing our schools, colleges, and departments, will turn out for the 2013–14 forums. The information and ideas to be presented there deserve to be disseminated and discussed widely throughout our community.
