Equity in Education Film Festival
September 16th & 17th, 2011

Who is the Guest Speaker?

Dr. Antwi Akom is a leading expert on educational equity. His research focuses on the links between race, environmental health, and educational equity in cities and schools; the role of the green economy in facilitating pathways out of poverty for vulnerable populations; and the role of local knowledge in the production of environmental health and educational equity. Professor Akom's research and practice works to build partnerships between local residents, schools and universities, environmental and educational experts, community based organizations, labor unions, green businesses, and city planners working together to generate policy and planning solutions that improve community health, economic mobility, and the pedagogies and practices of community leaders and decision-makers. Dr. Akom is visiting us from San Francisco State University.

Where do I park?

Metered Parking

Parking meters are available on the west side of Lawrence Way, the south end of 9th Street Park, on 5th Street and next to the South Classroom and Technology buildings. Meters vary but usually run 25 cents an hour for up to 4 hours.

For Validated Parking:

Park in the Tivoli garage on 900 Auraria Parkway, Denver CO 80204 (9th and Auraria). Tell the attendant that you are here to see a movie at the Starz Center and they will not require payment for parking at that time. They will give you a slip that you will bring into Starz and I will validate upon your departure. The theatre entrance will be adjacent to the parking garage.

Parking lots and Garages

Lots surrounding the Tivoli Student Union run from $4 to $10. Attendants may not be available on the weekend. Please bring cash to pay for parking.

**See map for reference of lots and corresponding prices.
