Monday, May 6 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm
The next edition of the lecture series, “Fast & Curious: ED Talks from UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School,” will take place on Monday, May 6 at 7 pm at the Faulkner Gallery at the Santa Barbara Public Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature three faculty members, two graduate students, and one alumna from the Gevirtz School giving no more than an eight-minute talk each about their research or work that is shaping education.
This edition in particular will explore topics relating to education policy issues, and feature speakers with unique inside knowledge of institutions. The Honorable Lois Capps—a Gevirtz School alumna—served as the U.S. Representative for California’s 24th congressional district from 1998 to 2017. Gevirtz School professor Michael Brown has served as UC provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs—in essence the UC system’s chief academic officer—since 2017.
A reception in the Faulkner Gallery will follow immediately after the presentations.
This evening will be the sixth in the successful series that began in February 2017. Videos of talks from the other evenings, which drew crowds of approximately 75 each, can be seen online (education.ucsb.edu/impact/local/fast-curious-ed-talks).
