Why the Common Good Disappeared and How We Get It Back

Friday, October 12, 2018 • 1:00pm–2:00pm Add to Calendar


Hertz Hall


The Class of '68 50th Reunion Lecture
Homecoming Weekend, October 12-14, 2018


PROFESSOR ROBERT B. REICH ignites a discussion of the good we have had in common, what happened to it, and what we might do to restore it. His goal is not that we all agree on the common good. It is that we get into the habit of thinking and talking about it, listening to each other’s views and providing a means for people with opposing views to debate these questions civilly.

Robert B. Reich is the Carmel P. Friesen Chair in Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy (Chancellor's Professor Emeritus 2012-2017), and is a Senior Fellow at both the Goldman School’s Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement and Berkeley’s Blum Center for Developing Economies.

Sponsored by the Cal Class of 1968 and the Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement.

For more information and to request disability-related accommodations, including sign-language interpreters, contact lcerdaprice@berkeley.edu.

The event is open to all, however we expect it will be well-attended and space is limited. Priority will be given to those who have registered for Homecoming. So if you have not registered (online registration is now closed), we urge you to arrive early and register onsite at Homecoming Headquarters for a Class Pass for access to all lectures. Class Passes are free for current UC Berkeley students.
