"Chevy vs. Cadillac": Talk examines the future of UT-Austin
Two years ago, UT System regent Gene Powell ignited a firestorm when he suggested that the state's public universities should turn their attention from being world-class research institutions ("Cadillacs") and focus instead on offering affordable four-year degrees, something like the old Chevrolet Bel Air. The continuing controversy involving research and undergraduate education at major public research universities is the subject of this panel discussion.

Panelists are Senior Vice Provost David Laude, Professor of Philosophy and former Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies Paul Woodruff, Natural Sciences Associate Dean Sacha Kopp and former UT-Austin student Guarav Sanghavi, co-developer of the online learning tool University Fellow and biology major Maria Fabiola Rodriguez moderates.
Location:Applied Computational Engineering & Sciences Building (ACE), Avaya Auditorium 2.302
