Policy Pub is a recurring series of plain-language talks by faculty of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy on issues that affect everyone, with a Q&A/dialogue session following the brief presentation. The series continues this spring with a virtual "Pubinar" format that allows participants to access the presentation and discussion from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
The year 2020 brought massive changes to almost every industry, and higher education is no exception. Tim Chapin, dean of the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy and professor of urban and regional planning, discusses some of the ways that higher education will be different in the years ahead, both in terms of campus life, teaching, research and community engagement and in how these changes affect the economic, cultural and social life of our city.
Since joining FSU in 1999, Dean Chapin has undertaken research on the effectiveness of Florida's growth management system and the role of sports facilities in the promotion of urban redevelopment. He is a noted expert on land use and comprehensive planning, growth management and urban redevelopment. Prior to his appointment as dean in 2017, Chapin served as chair of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, associate dean for development for the college and interim dean.
Unlike Zoom meetings where every participant is visible to all others "in the room," the webinar format features a moderator and a presenter on screen, sharing visual materials related to the topic of the night.
Attendees can submit questions or comments through a written chat option to interact with the facilitator, speaker and other attendees.
It is not necessary to have a Zoom account to participate.
