Our Place in Changing Cities: A Conversation with Pitt and Newcastle University Leaders

Join us for a special event featuring University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Patrick Gallagher in conversation with the leader of Newcastle University (UK), Vice Chancellor Chris Day.

In a wide-ranging discussion moderated by Lina Dostilio, Pitt’s Assistant Vice Chancellor of Community Engagement, the two higher education leaders will discuss the role of their institutions in post-industrial cities as universities take on new responsibilities in the areas of social mobility, cultural wellbeing, innovation, and economic development.

A reception will be held beginning at 11:30 am., in advance of the 12 – 1:00p.m. special program. Both events are open to the public and the entire Pitt community. Students, faculty, administrators, and the public are invited to engage in a dialogue with the panelists following the discussion.

Registration is not required. 

Seating is limited.
