Do you value UCSC's residential college system, its identity and legacy?

Come to this event!

New Directions in the Future of UC Santa Cruz
12 noon to 2 pm
Saturday, April 29
Cowell Conference Room 132

How do we interpret a proposed addition of 2,500 on-campus beds unaffiliated with the colleges, and on a site including the Porter Meadow, Porter "Squiggle" and trailer park areas?

What does giving control of the housing to a private developer mean for the long-term interests of the university, campus and students?

How will UCSC reconcile rising enrollment with the campus' history?

Please join a timely conversation. This will be a friendly and informative discussion, a chance to enjoy your lunch with fellow alumni, make some new friends, and learn more about the future of the campus and school we know and love. You're welcome and encouraged to bring your lunch, which could be picked up or purchased by the quarry plaza.

The event is being organized by Matthew Waxman, who is a 2006 Porter College graduate, a member of the UCSC Alumni Council, and was a student representative to the 2005-2020 Long Range Development Plan Committee.

§New Directions in the Future of UC Santa Cruz
by Alumni Weekend 2017 Thursday Apr 27th, 2017 5:57 PM
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?
