22 May The Uses of the University in 2050: A Report from the All-UC Faculty Charrette

McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
From February 23-26, 2012 colleagues from throughout the UC system converged at UC Santa Barbara to discuss the future of the University of California. Organized by Professors Catherine Cole (UCB) and Ann Bermingham (UCSB) the project was inspired by the thirty-year history of All-UC Faculty Conferences, in which faculty from all campuses and all disciplines came together for two days to discuss a topic of system-wide importance. The Santa Barbara meeting, while not officially convened by the Academic Senate (as were past all-UC faculty conferences), nevertheless was designed to draw upon and invoke this UC tradition. Its goal was to stimulate faculty re-engagement in envisioning the future of the University. The conveners will report on the charrette process, the findings, and future projects.
