The program doesn't teach answers to specific problems. Rather\, it provides a social "laboratory" for exploring the dynamics of power\, leadership\, authority\, change and transformation as they actually arise and unfold during the conference. Participants are exposed to a method of ‘reflection-in-action’ that utilizes both the intellect and emotions and can reveal profound truths.

Both domestic welfare policies and international development programs usually employ a top-down approach\, where the needs of the poor are determined by experts\, and the aid itself is often made conditional on meeting various requirements set out by those experts. But over the past several years\, a new approach has begun to gain international attention. That approach involves a radical\, simple idea: giving the poor cash\, and letting them decide what to do with it\, no strings attached. Paul Niehaus is an associate professor in the department of economics at UC San Diego and co-founder of Give Directly and Segovia\, two organizations dedicated to finding innovative ways to transfer resources to underserved communities. He is globally respected for his work on universal basic income and was named by Foreign Policy as one of its leading 100 "Global Thinkers" in 2013. In this talk\, he will discuss his work with GiveDirectly in establishing a universal basic income in rural Kenya\, and other efforts to fight poverty through direct cash transfers both internationally\, and right here in the United States.  Please note: This event is free and no RSVP is required.

The case began in 1965\, when three Iowa public school students wore black armbands to school in silent protest against the Vietnam War. After being suspended by their principal\, the students sued. When their case reached the Supreme Court four years later\, the justices decided by a 7-2 majority that the First Amendment did apply to public school students. "It can hardly be argued\," Justice Abe Fortas wrote in the majority opinion\, "that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate."

In the words of Mother Rosalie Hill\, “Beauty will attract them\, goodness will lead them\, but the truth will hold them.” Having examined the concepts of both beauty and goodness\, we complete the series with an investigation into the idea of truth\, approached from a range of perspectives and disciplines. Each session consists of three presentations by experts drawn from USD’s College of Arts and Sciences. At a time when the very idea of truth appears to be under attack\, this semesterlong investigation takes on topical and urgent significance.

An essential aspect of sleep-wake behavior is the ability to rapidly transition from one state to another and persist in that state to engage in behaviors critical for survival and reproduction. In this talk\, Divya Sitaraman\, PhD\, explores if studies of genes\, neurons and circuits in simple animal models can illuminate how we balance rest and activity and engage in different behaviors in an unpredictable world. Sitaraman is an assistant professor of psychological sciences. Reception to follow.
