Our beloved Steve Jobbitt, Professor of History, will present a talk and lead a discussion on "The Sustainability of Higher Education in an Age of Rising Debt and Automation”
Noon-1pm, Pollak Library Atrium Gallery, Cal State Fullerton

Higher education in the US (and indeed around the world) is currently in the midst of a profound transformation, one that promises to significantly alter not just how we access learning, but also how we pay for it. Scrutinizing the ever-expanding automation of education against the backdrop of the looming student debt crisis, this workshop asks whether or not a public university like ours can survive in its current form. Who stands to benefit from these changes? Who stands to lose? And how should students and professors respond?

Please join Steve Jobbitt in this important discussion.

Cost: FREE. Sponsored by the CSUF Library.

This event is part of a wonderful ongoing art exhibit and lecture/poetry series on Sustainability organized by Jie Tian at the Pollak Library.
