On Monday, April 10, Dr. Celeste Carruthers will present “Community Colleges: Can They Be All Things to All Students?” as part of the Education Policy Workshop series hosted by the Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics, and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University. Carruthers is the William F. Fox Distinguished Professor of Labor Economics in the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee with a joint appointment in the Department of Economics and the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research. Her research centers on education policy with crossovers into public economics, labor economics, and economic history. Recent and ongoing projects examine the effect of financial aid on college choices, career, and technical education. She will speak about her current research and its policy implications.
The event will be held at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum from 5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m., with a reception following immediately after the program.
