Colleges and universities have both special responsibilities and distinctive opportunities in creating strong and healthy communities. At their best, they contribute not only by preparing students for lives of engaged citizenship, but also by supporting research and institutional practices that serve the public good. In a moment of renewed focus on how local institutions can contribute to the sustainability of democracy, join us for a conversation about how higher education is rising to the challenge and building cross-sector collaborations to do so.
Offered in partnership by Presidio Trust and California Campus Compact, this engaging evening of conversation features remarks by California Campus Compact President Andrew Seligsohn, followed by responses from the W&EHF’s Executive Director, Pam David, and Sheryl Evans Davis, Executive Director of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.
