Starving the Beast: Film Screening and Discussion
Tue, April 4, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities Academic Leadership Program hosts this free film screening and discussion open to the faculty, students, staff, and the public.
The 2016 documentary Starving the Beast focuses on the struggle at colleges, where political and market-oriented forces push to disrupt and reform. The film documents a philosophical shift that seeks to reframe public higher education as a "value proposition" to be borne by the beneficiary of a college degree rather than as a "public good" for society. Colleges featured include University of Wisconsin, University of Virginia, University of North Carolina, Louisiana State University, University of Texas and Texas A&M.
IAH Acting Director and Chancellor Emeritus James Moeser will moderate the public discussion following the film.
Movie snacks (popcorn and candy) will be served. Kindly RSVP.
