This session is led by Lindsay Cohn, political science. Students often find that simulations help them understand abstract concepts better than just reading about them. This session explains and demonstrates some of the games or simulations done frequently in Cohn’s class. In the second part of the session, we will brainstorm ways to apply these game types (negotiation, strategy) to other disciplines. Sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
Under the direction of UNI School of Music professor and conductor S. Daniel Galyen, the Symphonic Band will offer its fall concert. This event is free and open to the public.

Tuesday, November 13- What is abortion? - Sabin 02, 7 pm- We will discuss what the different abortion procedures are, including when they are performed, how long they take, their costs, safety, and possible complications.
