Starving the Beast

This film follows the ongoing power struggle between Public Universities and the role of funding - and more importantly de-funding - higher education. The film features interviews with individuals who see these establishments as “consumer-oriented organizations.” Director Steve Mims will be present for the screening.

Join us for a reception at 6:30pm. The screening will begin at 7pm, to be followed by a brief conversation.
