January 17, 2012 — With the California High Speed Rail project being hotly debated from the local to the national level, CSUB is offering a chance for students and the community to hear arguments and learn facts from all sides.
A free, five-session speaker series beginning Jan. 18 will feature community experts, starting with Kern County Supervisor Ray Watson and Kern Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Richard Chapman, who will both speak about job creation.
The course continues every other Wednesday through March 14, hitting topics such as the project's business plan, financing, environmental impact, consequences, and culminating with a town hall style meeting. The class meets in the evening from 5:45 to 7:30 p.m. in Science III, Room 213.
CSUB students who take the course will receive general studies credit. The free course is also open to the general public through CSUB's Extended University program.
The registration form can be found on the Extended University Division website at: http://www.csub.edu/eud/. Click on "FORMS" in the blue bar on the left. Although the form indicates differently, the form can be faxed to EUD at (661) 654-2447.
