Panel Discussion | January 20 | 2-3:30 p.m. | Sutardja Dai Hall, Banatao Auditorium

 Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, Equity & Inclusion, and American Cultures Center

Academic Engagement for Our Changing Times is a faculty panel planned for Inauguration Day to discuss the ways in which our academic lives and work might be affected in these changing political times. Moderated by Na’ilah Nasir, Vice Chancellor for Equity & Inclusion and co-chair of the HIFIS Race, Diversity and Educational Policy cluster, this session is designed to pose the question: how do the outcome of the election and the prospect of our country’s new leadership impact our work as scholars, teachers, thinkers, and members of the academic community? The panel will feature distinguished faculty from a range of disciplines. Open to faculty, students, staff, and community members in all fields and departments.
