The UC Center Sacramento Thursday Speaker Series

The UC Center Sacramento Thursday Speaker Series:

The UC Center Sacramento (UCCS) offers weekly public lectures by UC faculty on a variety of public policy issues. Attendees include UCCS students, legislative staff, employees of state agencies and departments, advocates, and members of the general public.  UCCS invites faculty members from any UC campus to deliver lectures summarizing new findings or synthesizing information with potential implications for state policy.

Lectures may address any policy-relevant topic, but each year the Center puts together several mini-series which emphasize special themes, in 2014-15 the mini-series focused on: 1) Energy, Environment and Water; 2) Equality, Inequality and Prosperity; and 3) California 2034: Policymaking Beyond the Next Election Cycle. In 2015-2016 our mini-series will focus on: 1) Water Use and Security; 2) Health and Health Care; and 3) Taxation and Revenue

The public talks are held on Thursdays at noon and lunch is provided. A list of upcoming talks is available on the UC Center Sacramento website at Any individual who wishes to attend a public talk can register at  The views and opinions expressed during our hosted lectures are those of the speaker and do not necessarily represent the views of the University of California or the UC Center Sacramento.
