Register for Regents Day 2012!

Regents Day at the Statehouse held on Thursday March 29th 7:30AM to 4PM is an annual event in which students from the three campuses travel to Des Moines to participate in advocacy activities at the State Capitol. Students engage in individual meetings with legislators, as well as sit in on committee meetings and observe floor action. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about and participate in the political process. Students prepare briefing materials and presentations in advance of the trip, as well as learn about protocol. Faculty are requested to consider, as appropriate, allowing absences from class and/or opportunities for make-up work for students wishing to attend. Contact with additional questions or concerns regarding Regents Day 2012.
