Presidential Elections and Social Justice: Wither the University?
The U.S. political system is in crisis as impassioned struggles for social justice break out everywhere. The 2016 U.S. presidential elections may be the most controversial in recent memory. What role does, or should, the university play in the burning issues of our day? Three nationally-prominent commentators from the front lines will discuss and debate these matters. Panelists includes Dr. Melina Abdullah of California State University-Los Angeles, Robert Scheer of Truthdig as editor-in-chief, Dr. Antonia Darder of Loyola Marymount University, and moderated by Dr. William Robinson of UCSB.
Following the panel, Health & Wellness will be hosting a community space in the MCC Lounge for students to decompress from election-related stress.
