Don’t miss your chance to talk informally over bagels for lunch with Chris Newfield about the future of public universities at noon today in 939 Curtin. Chris is a Professor of English at UC Santa Barbara and an authority on and fierce advocate for public higher education. Plus he’s a good guy. And then, at 4 pm, you can hear his lecture, “Does the U.S. Need Public Universities,” on the fourth floor of the Golda Meir Library (reception to follow).
