UniverCities: How Higher Education is Transforming Urban America


The UC San Diego Institute of Arts and Humanities (IAH) invites you to attend a lecture and discussion as part of the Challenging Conversations event series.

This event will feature esteemed guest speaker, Davarian Baldwin, Professor of American Studies at Trinity College. Professor Baldwin will talk about the growing influence of higher education on urban development, especially in communities of color. Following the talk will be a discussion where audience members are encouraged to ask questions.

This event will be held in the University Art Gallery at UC San Diego, and attendees will have the opportunity to explore the current exhibit from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Seating is limited and may be guaranteed. Priority will be given to those attendees that arrive first. Please RSVP to help speed up the check-in process.


Paid visitor parking is available at the Gilman Parking Structure and the Osler Parking Structure—both approximately a 10–15 minute walk to the gallery. Please review maps prior and allow extra time to navigate to the parking lot and venue before the event starts, to account for rush hour traffic and construction on campus.

The lecture is in the University Art Gallery on the UC San Diego campus. The gallery entrance faces west, at the west end of Mandeville Center and north east of the Main Gym.


This event is hosted by the Institute of Arts & Humanities (IAH) with sponsorship from the Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar, the University of California Office of the President, the UC San Diego International Institute, the UC San Diego History Department, and the Black Studies Project.
