Today our guests for the full hour are three young women applying to colleges and universities in what we’re referring to as the post “Dobbs” era, where abortion and reproductive healthcare are highly restricted if not effectively banned in seventeen states. Offering their personal reflections, choices, and experiences as higher education applicants in this moment are: University High School senior Camryn Cummings, applying to undergraduate programs; and UCI alumna Kimberly Martinez and UCI undergraduate Kalisse Ajlouny, both of whom are applying for advanced degrees.

Amidst the recently unearthed college admissions scandals, we hear what Vice Provost of Academic Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and history professor Doug Haynes really thinks – how his charter within the UC system handles the inequities of education in the broadest possible sense.
In the second segment (minute 27:35, pharmacology professor and director of UCI’s Center for the Study of Cannabis, Daniele Piomelli posts us on the fine minds congregating March 31st 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at The Cove at Applied Innovations.
