Held on UNT’s Denton campus, the institute begins at 9 a.m. Monday and concludes around noon Friday. Lunch will be provided all five days; all other meals and housing are at the attendee’s expense.

Doc Spot Film Series: Starving the Beast

As college tuition skyrockets and student debt explodes, a powerful new documentary reveals a nationwide fight for control of the heart, soul, and finances of America’s public universities.

Starving the Beast reveals a historic philosophical shift that reframes public higher education as a ‘value proposition’ to be borne by the student as a consumer, rather than an investment in citizens as a ‘public good’. Financial winners and losers emerge in a struggle poised to profoundly change public higher education.
