As a new U.S. presidential administration prepares for the four years ahead, coping with intersecting challenges including a pandemic, persistent inequality, climate change policy and a sea of misinformation, UCLA experts discuss what role institutions of higher learning will play in addressing the crises of our times.

How can universities help champion science and evidence in a skeptical society where fact-based professions like journalism and medicine are under attack? When we are often divided into disconnected and conflicting media bubbles, how can universities help inspire people to embrace reliable facts as a means to heal our economy, our planet and our culture?

UCLA environmental humanities scholar Ursula K. Heise, public health researcher Gilbert Gee and internet and society expert Safiya U. Noble come together in a discussion moderated by storyteller and curator Chon Noriega.

Opening remarks by UCLA Chancellor Gene Block.

Those who RSVP will receive a confirmation email with a link to tune in.

A recording will be available after the premiere.
