A Conversation with Michelle Obama

The Humanities Institute is excited to announce that UC Santa Cruz has been invited to participate in a special event with Michelle Obama on Tuesday, November 9th, 2021, at Howard University in Washington, D.C. This event will feature Mrs. Obama in conversation with a moderator and selected students from a small group of participating colleges, including ours.

Our campus community will have remote access to the free event and an opportunity to receive a free copy of Mrs. Obama’s book Becoming.

We will nominate one UC Santa Cruz undergraduate student to meet Mrs. Obama and participate in the in-person event at Howard University. The conversation will be based on themes from her 2018 memoir, Becoming, with a particular emphasis on issues that are most resonant for college students. The Humanities Institute will sponsor the student’s travel and accommodation in Washington, D.C. Applications are due on Thursday, October 21, at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Join this special conversation online by registering with your ucsc.edu email address! Please note the registration is free and is open until Friday, November 5, at 8:59 p.m. PT.

The Humanities Institute is also thrilled to be able to offer 500 free copies of Becoming to members of the UC Santa Cruz community. Please sign up here to get your free book!
