Join The Texas Tribune for a conversation on higher education and social mobility, moderated by Ayan Mittra, editor of The Texas Tribune.

Panelists will include:

  • Dr. Kenneth Evans, president of Lamar University
  • Dr. Millicent Valek, president of Brazosport College
  • Ashley Williams, economic opportunity policy analyst at the Center for Public Policy Priorities
