Shared Services and Other Bad Ideas,

a presentation by Dr. Robert Ovetz about an incredibly bad idea proposed by a committee of business executives that would have the University of Texas at Austin spend as much as $180 million to eliminate 500 UT Austin jobs through consolidation and privatization.

When: Thursday Nov. 7 at 7:00 P.M.

Where: UT LBJ School, Sid Richardson Hall, Room 3.124

Dr Ovetz will discuss the corporatization of UT and describe how UT has engaged in “planned austerity” to funnel money to corporations and force the university community to pay for it. Join the discussion and find out how we can come together to maintain UT as a quality public university.
