AAUP SE CHAPTER

            Free Screening of STARVING THE BEAST

     The Southeastern Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP)
     would like to invite you to join us for a screening of the documentary film Starving the
     Beast. The screening will be held Monday, November 28th at 4:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts
     Recital Hall, and admission is free.

        This 95 minute film is very informative in its frank portrayal of the national trend to
        de-fund (and therefore de-value) public universities, and is a must-see for anyone
        concerned with public higher education.

      According to writer and director Steve Mims, this film "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 re-frame 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."

      Starving the Beast has been featured in
Inside Higher Ed,  and has been reviewed in
      
The New York Times  and The Washington Post.
