Starving the Beast (Steve Mims, 2016) New Documentary Mon, Nov 7, 2016 5 PM The provocative documentary Starving the Beast examines the deep ideological debates raging around the country over the funding of state universities and colleges. The divide is marked by those who want to apply a market approach to higher ed, with costs borne by the consumer (i.e. students and their families), and those who view education as an investment that serves the broader public good. Cases unfolding at six universities including the University of Wisconsin, Virginia, and Texas serve as vivid illustrations of this battle of opposing philosophies. (95 mins., DCP) Cosponsored by Ohio State's Humanities Institute.
