Starving the Beast Movie Showing

Join the College of Liberal Arts, Graduate School, Joe Crowley Student Union, Nevada Faculty Alliance and the Office of Information Technology in a film screening of the movie Starving the Beast.

Starving the Beast examines the on-going 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 a ‘public good’ for society. Financial winners and losers emerge in a struggle poised to profoundly change public higher education. The film focuses on 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.
