The first Chancellor’s Colloquium to be confirmed for 2020 will feature Robert M. Franklin, Jr., a reverend and the James T. and Berta R. Laney Professor in Moral Leadership at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. At Emory, Franklin was founding director of Candler’s Black Church Studies program. He has also worked on a Human Rights Campaign committee aimed at making historically black colleges and universities more inclusive for LGBTQIA students, faculty and staff.
Franklin, a previous president of Morehouse College, will visit UC Davis on Feb. 20, 2020.
The event will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room at the Student Community Center, and will be co-presented by The UC Davis Forums on the Public University and the Social Good. The lecture will be from 3:00pm to 4:30pm followed by a reception. The ticketing information is forthcoming.
