UCR’s Department of Theatre, Film, and Digital Production is putting on their fall show. Based on a Shakespearean play, “Love Labour’s Lost,” offers a whimsical time, full of love and laughs.

The musical, a 21st century comedy, uses the original text and narrates the story of a king and his friends who have sworn to enjoy life and forget about romance. But life is never that easy, especially not when four girls from their past make a reappearance. In this modernized classic, the audience will enjoy a story that celebrates love and coming of age.

The performance comes to life with songs by Michael Friedman, book adapted by Alex Timbers. It is directed by Chari Arespacochaga, with musical direction by Michael Antaramian, and choreography by Dominique Araiza-Cauldwell.

Local, International Educational Leaders Discuss Learning and Partnerships

Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox attended the 52nd annual Assembly of Latin American Commission for Administration Schools (CLADEA), which was held in Riverside in October.

Wilcox presented on the panel, “Presidents Perspectives on the Future of Global Education,” and spoke on the importance of building deeper engagement that goes beyond student exchange. The chancellor emphasized that as learning communities, institutional partnerships need to build deeper roots that connect to research, faculty collaboration and specialization, as well as knowledge transfer and dissemination. He was joined by Tomás Morales of CSU San Bernardino, Sue Henderson of City University New Jersey and Alfonso Lopez-Diaz of Pedagogical and Technological University of Colombia.

The event, which took place Oct. 17-19, drew hundreds of academics and educational leaders from across Latin America. It was co-hosted by CSU San Bernardino, and co-sponsored by the UC Riverside School of Business.

CLADEA is an international, nonprofit headquartered in Peru that joins higher education institutions and other international organizations devoted to teaching and research in the field of business administration. This year’s theme, “Breaking the Mold: Anticipating the Challenges of Local Education,” provided a platform for educational leaders from around the world to discuss the impact of globalization, internationalization in higher education and the roles of government and business.
