Barnard President Debora Spar will head to the White House on Thursday to discuss expanding college opportunities for low-income students alongside more than 100 college and university presidents.

The daylong event, which kicks off at 9 a.m. EST, will be livestreamed here.

Both President Barack Obama, CC ’83, and first lady Michelle Obama will speak at the event, which will also feature panel discussions with the academics and representatives from nonprofits, the private sector, and state governments.

More information will be available after the event on Barnard’s website and the White House’s blog.
