Join your colleagues for the inaugural session of the new Feel the Impact speaker series which will explore the impact of UC on the lives of its students.

The first speakers are from the Underground Scholars Initiative (USI) which supports “all prospective and current UC Berkeley students impacted by issues of mass incarceration, imprisonment, and detainment of any kind. The goal of USI is to bridge the topic of mass incarceration that is highly popularized in academia with one that is grounded in the lived experiences of UC Berkeley students.” An article about USI was recently published in the New Yorker magazine.

Come and listen as these UC Berkeley students share their experiences with incarceration and the impact of higher education on their lives.

Date: Thursday, April 20
Time: 12 to 1 p.m.
Location: Franklin Lobby 1

Light refreshments will be served, but feel free to bring your lunch. Sponsored by the Office of the Chief Financial Officer.

    I think this series is a terrific idea. Many of us rarely get to a campus to see the end results of much of our work. Thank you for setting up these talks.
