Festival Closing Event and Panel Discussion

Transitions: Campus Culture

The final event of the Transitions Festival asks three questions: what might we change about campus culture here at Loughborough? How might we effect this change? And, how might this transition serve as a template for other spaces? Beginning with a panel discussion led by VC Nick Jennings regarding his call to all men to take responsibility for changing misogynistic elements of campus culture, we then broaden our scope to explore the role the University might play in enacting this and other forms of transition, as highlighted by the Festival Fellows.

Vice Chancellor - Nick Jennings (Loughborough University)
IAS Visiting Fellow - Jane Chin Davidson (California State University, San Bernardino)
