Science vs. security on university campuses to be subject of UCI lecture
 
EVENT:

Donald Kennedy, editor-in-chief of Science and president emeritus of Stanford University will speak on “Science and the University: An Evolutionary Tale Part III: Science, Security and Control,” as part of the 2007 Clark Kerr Lecture Series on the Role of Higher Education in Society.

DATE: Wednesday, November 28, 2007
TIME: 4 p.m. reception, 5 p.m. lecture
LOCATION: Crystal Cove Auditorium, UCI Student Center
 
BACKGROUND:

The post-9/11 era has reopened Cold War questions for university scientists and those charged with protecting national security. To what extent should research data and methods be open? What happens if some of that knowledge falls into the wrong hands? Should the release of scientific discoveries ever be manipulated in support of public policy outcomes? These are some of the issues Donald Kennedy will explore in the 2007 Clark Kerr Lecture Series on the Role of Higher Education in Society. Kennedy is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. He served on the National Commission for Public Service, and the Carnegie Commission on Science, Technology and Government. He is founding director of the Health Effects Institute and currently directs the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. His research looks at major land-use changes, economically driven evolutions in agricultural practices, global climate change and regulatory policy development. The Clark Kerr Lectures, sponsored by the Center for Studies in Higher Education at UC Berkeley, is a biennial event named in honor of the first chancellor of Berkeley who went on to serve as president of the University of California from 1958 to 1967.
