“A jolt of chilling clarity.” —Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

Starving the Beast examines the ongoing power struggle on college campuses across the nation as political and market-oriented forces push to disrupt and reform America’s public universities. The film documents a philosophical shift that seeks to reframe public higher education as a “value proposition” to be borne by the beneficiary of a college degree rather than as public good for society.

Financial winners and losers emerge in a struggle poised to profoundly change access to public universities. The film focuses on the dramas playing out at the University of Wisconsin, University of Virginia, University of North Carolina, Louisiana State University, University of Texas, and Texas A&M. 2016, U.S., DCP, 95 minutes. Recommended for 12+.

Followed by a panel discussion with

Emily Bingham – Historian & former UofL Trustee
Morgan McGarvey — KY State Senator, 19th District
David Owen — Chair, Department of Philosophy, UofL
Vishnu Tirumala — President, SGA & Student Trustee, UofL
Enid Trucios-Haynes — School of Law & Faculty Trustee, UofL

Co-presented with the Commonwealth Center for Humanities & Society, Department of Philosophy, and the AAUP of UofL.
