The event will be held on Friday, April 26, from 3:15 to 5 p.m. in the Stevenson College Event Center.

Panelists include the following:

• Daphne Koller, co-founder of Coursera, professor of computer science, Stanford University

• Robert Meister, professor of history of consciousness, UCSC

• Rodney Ogawa, professor of education, UCSC

• Alison Galloway, campus provost/executive vice chancellor, UCSC

The discussion will be moderated by Lois Kazakoff, deputy editorial page editor for the San Francisco Chronicle, and UCSC alumna (Cowell 1976).
