How can we revolutionize the university to better prepare students for our age of constant change? How can we retool our classrooms as activist, engaged learning environments that model a more just society? In this talk, Cathy N. Davidson will discuss her book The New Education: How to Revolutionize the University to Prepare Students for a World in Flux and show how we can revolutionize our universities to help students be leaders of change, not simply subject to it. 

This event is presented by the UC Santa Cruz Humanities Institute and Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning. Cosponsored by the Chicano Latino Research Center.
