UCCS PRESS RELEASE

UC Center announces the winner of its second annual UCCS Bacon Public Lectureship and White Paper Competition


Sacramento, CA- UC Center Sacramento announces the winner of its second annual UCCS Bacon Public Lectureship and White Paper Competition. Open to faculty and researchers throughout the UC system, the Bacon Lectureship focuses on evidence-based public policy.

The winner is Professor Karen Chapple from the Center for Community Innovation at UC Berkeley.

Dr. Richard Kravitz, Director of UC Center Sacramento, believes that the Bacon Lectureship affords an important opportunity for the University of California to deliver on its promise of discovering and sharing knowledge to advance the public good in California. “Through the generosity of Kevin and Kim Bacon, UC Center Sacramento will bring world-class UC faculty to the state Capitol to address critical policy questions raised by legislative staff and other government officials,” said Dr. Kravitz.

Professor Chapple’s entry focused on how to relate tax incentives to the state’s climate change goals. The lecture, “Optimizing California’s Tax System to Reduce Fiscal Barriers to Climate Change Goals”, will be presented at UC Center on February 24, 2016.

Chapple’s paper was submitted as part of a UC-wide “call” that asked UC faculty to submit proposals to stimulate evidence synthesis and creative thinking around a pressing public policy problem. In addition to presenting the lecture, Professor Chapple will receive research support and meet with relevant policy staff in Sacramento. Her entry was selected by a panel of policy experts convened by UC Center.

This past February, the inaugural 2015 Bacon Lecture was presented by Dr. Michael Gottfried of the Gevirtz School of Education at UC Santa Barbara.

“With the selection of Professor Karen Chapple of UC Berkeley as this year’s Bacon Lecturer, the series continues the standard of excellence established in 2015 by Dr. Gottfried, ” said Dr. Kravitz.
