1/22 at #UCDavis Provost’s Forum on Access and Affordability

Just received this announcement for what seems to be an interesting talk tomorrow …

Dear UC Davis Faculty, Staff, Students and Community Members,

We are pleased to announce that the next event in the Provost’s Forums on the Public University and the Social Good will be held tomorrow on Wednesday, January 22nd.

UC Davis Professor Ann Huff Stevens, Chair of the Study Group on Accessibility and Affordability, Professor and Chair of Economics and Director of the Center for Poverty Research, along with a panel of UC Davis undergraduate students will discuss on the topic of “Access and Affordability: Student and Faculty Perspectives.”

Professor Stevens will present the findings of the Study Group on Accessibility and Affordability, a group created to evaluate and develop ideas, strategies, and programs to help the campus achieve the UC Davis vision of maintaining and expanding access to an excellent undergraduate education. Professor Stevens’ presentation will be followed by a panel of undergraduate students discussing their experiences and observations on these issues, as well as a question and answer session with the students and Professor Stevens.

The event will begin in Memorial Union Room II at 4:30 p.m. and will conclude at 6:30 p.m. after a reception with light refreshments. We hope to see you at this exciting event!
