NJ Association of State Colleges and Universities Hosts Free Screening of Documentary on the Defunding of Public Higher Education on April 12, 2017

The New Jersey Association of State Colleges and Universities (NJASCU) invites you to a free screening of the higher education documentary (2016) film Starving the Beast on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 7:30 p.m., Princeton Garden Theatre. The thought-provoking film about the systematic defunding of public higher education throughout the country will be followed by a discussion with NJASCU CEO Michael Klein.

According to the March 25, 2016 review in the Huffington Post: "No film better exposes the coordinated assault on public higher education that is going on right now." Dr. Klein will relate the movie's content to the declining state funding for New Jersey's senior public higher education institutions. Significantly reduced state support impacts college affordability and access for New Jersey's students, as well as the economic health of the state.

The New Jersey Association of State Colleges and Universities is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, created by state law in 1985 to support and advocate on behalf of New Jersey's senior public institutions of higher education.www.njascu.org

The Garden Theatre is a nonprofit, member-supported arthouse dedicated to the community film-going experience and the preservation of the historic theater.

For parking/directions to the Wednesday, April 12, 7:30 p.m. screening at the Princeton Garden Theatre please go to:
