STARVING THE BEAST examines the on-going power struggle on college campuses across the nation as political and market-oriented forces push to disrupt and reform America’s public universities. The film documents a philosophical shift that seeks to reframe public higher education as a ‘value proposition’ to be borne by the beneficiary of a college degree rather than as a ‘public good’ for society. Financial winners and losers emerge in a struggle poised to profoundly change public higher education. The film focuses on dramas playing out at the University of Wisconsin, University of Virginia, University of North Carolina, Louisiana State University, University of Texas and Texas A&M.

Sponsored by: The Departments of: Cinema and Digital Media; French and Italian; Asian American Studies; Design; Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies; and the Davis Faculty Association, the Center for Regional Change, and the Davis Humanities Institute.
