New Directions in the Future of UC Santa Cruz

Cowell Conference Room #132

Come bring your lunch and join an alumni-led discussion about on-campus residential student life at UC Santa Cruz over the past 50 years and into the future. We will reflect on the history of housing on-campus, its relationship to the total UC Santa Cruz experience, and interpret current plans including a privately-developed addition of 2,500 on-campus beds unaffiliated with the colleges. How do we consider UC Santa Cruz’s legacy of the residential college system? How do new directions shape the campus?
