Philosophers’ Café meets Wednesday, April 1
This month’s Café, led by UW-Green Bay’s Denise Bartell (Human Development), asks whether higher education is still a reliable mechanism for reducing social and economic inequality. Are for-profit and online institutions financially efficient solutions, or do they create a two-tiered system that may perpetuate and exacerbate social inequality? Public regional comprehensive universities such as UW-Green Bay have become ground zero in efforts to increase the percentage of college-educated citizens in states around the country. But what responsibility do they hold for equitably serving those in their communities when public support declines? Can our public university system continue to fulfill the Wisconsin Idea? Should it? Titletown Brewing Company (upstairs room, near the shuffleboard game) is located at 200 Dousman St, Green Bay.
