TONIGHT: CAFE and UAA/APU Ford Foundation Difficult Dialogues host debate and discussion on race-based preferences in university admissions on Sept. 16
by Kathleen McCoy |
Thursday, Sept. 16, 7-9 p.m.
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 307
A debate, followed by a discussion, over race-based preference for University admissions will engage UAA's international award-winning Seawolf Debate Team, followed by a faculty forum and facilitated public discussion on affirmative action. This event is part of a series of public policy debates and discussions sponsored by the UAA Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) since 2003 to offer the Anchorage community access to university resources as a basis for discussions of policies and issues affecting their future.
The debate format is not used to determine a "winning" and "losing" side, but rather to quickly inform participants of the wide range of opinions and positions on the issue. UAA faculty deepen the discussion by addressing the issues through the frameworks of their respective disciplines; a facilitated public discussion follows.
This event is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, please contact Libby Roderick at firstname.lastname@example.org or (907) 786-4605.
