"Free expression in the academy" Nov. 13 in Jackson

From a UW press release:

What are the promises and perils of our increasingly digital world? Who pays for dealing with climate change? Who should speak at a public university?

Three University of Wyoming professors tackle these questions Saturday, Nov. 13, from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., during Saturday U: The Free One-Day College Education at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson.

Now in its second year, Saturday U is a collaborative program designed to connect top UW professors with life-long learners in Jackson Hole. This free college experience offers Jackson residents an opportunity to exercise their minds without homework, or tests - the only requirement is a love of learning.

Offered three times a year, Saturday U is sponsored by the University of Wyoming, UW Foundation and Wyoming Humanities Council. It is presented by Central Wyoming College, National Museum of Wildlife Art and Teton County Library Foundation. For information, contact Teton County Library Adult Humanities Coordinator, Oona Doherty, (307) 733-2164 ext. 135 or odoherty@tclib.org

Participants may earn half a college credit (in-state tuition is $44.50) or half a Professional Teaching Standards Board credit from Central Wyoming College. To register for credit, call Susan Thulin, CWC outreach coordinator, (307) 733-7425.
