Ed Perspectives: Undergraduates in Education Research

This event will include a panel of UNI faculty from curriculum and instruction, geography, math and computer science sharing how they have involved undergraduate students in education research. They will discuss the projects the students worked on, the roles they assumed and the tasks they performed, and the conditions of the undergraduate research arrangement (e.g., hourly pay, stipend, academic credit). Several students will also be present to provide their perspectives on being involved in education research.

Rock the Stacks

The UNI Museum will host "Rock the Stacks!," the second concert in the series featuring Clayton Ryan, Ladyspade and Amelia and Melina. This concert is part of the current exhibit "Ballroom Bash: Iowa's Rock 'n' Roll Legacy." Stop by, rock out and learn more about how Iowa has rocked through the decades.
