By From page A4 | February 13, 2013

A half-day symposium at UC Davis on Friday, Feb. 22, will spotlight the mission of the contemporary land-grant universities and what changes may be needed in university policy to better fulfill that mission.

The free public event will run from 1:10 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Student Community Center’s multipurpose room.

Set to speak are Lawrence Busch, professor of sociology at Michigan State University; Rose Hayden-Smith, 4-H youth, family and community development adviser for UC Cooperative Extension; James Lapsley, UCD professor of viticulture and enology; and Scott Peters, professor of cultural foundations of education at Syracuse University.

The event is part of a series, the provost’s forum on the public university and the social good.
