Celebrating Community Engaged Scholarship Across Generations – TWLF 50th Anniversary

Thursday, Apr 25, 2019 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Anna Head Alumnae Hall | UC Berkeley
Location is ADA accessible

On April 25, 1989, UC Berkeley adopted the ground-breaking American Cultures (AC) undergraduate education requirement thanks to years of student and faculty protest and campaigning. Thirty years later, we celebrate this curricular innovation in light of the TWLF 50th Anniversary.  This day will feature panel discussions on the current state of political education, activist scholarship, and the arts.

Please sign-up for meals here.
