The Frank Rhodes Lecture Series presents: 

Designing for Equity: Building Innovative Systems for Lifelong Learning

Frank Rhodes scholar Ajita Talwalker Menon is the president and CEO for Calbright College. Her job is to lead the college to help underserved Californians gain greater economic mobility and to provide skilled talent for hiring employers.

In this virtual lecture, President Menon will address the idea that there is a rising tide of dialogue on the need for greater equity in the United States and higher education has been long touted as a great equalizer. She will explore how in this moment, we have the opportunity to confront where real gaps exist in current higher education opportunities and outcomes, and to redesign institutions of higher education in ways that prioritize equity.

This event will be moderated by Minu Ipe, managing director and vice chair of UDI. A special introduction will be given by President Crow.

This event is open to all members of the ASU community (students, staff, faculty, alumni) and is free to attend.
