Debate on Pornography - Pornography, a multibillion dollar industry, is one of the most controversial issues in the United States. Is it degrading or liberating? Is it destructive or a fun fantasy?

The event is sponsored by ACE. For more information contact Petritsa Chatzitziva at email@example.com.
Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead: The Frank Meeink Story - Frank Meeink became a Skinhead at 13. By 16, he was the leader of a Skinhead gang that beat people indiscriminately.

This live lecture on Thursday, Feb. 28 in MSU 218, at 11 a.m. will break your heart and put it back together again as you listen to Meeink’s journey from hatred to harmony.

“Meet and Eat” Spring 2013 - Have you always wanted to get to know other members of the campus community? Would you enjoy being treated to lunch? The office of the Provost will be sponsoring lunches for small groups that include a combination of KU students, faculty and staff. (Dr. Vargas will not be in attendance at these lunches.) The goal is that these individuals will get to know one another and, in turn, become more knowledgeable about the members of our campus family. So that there is no financial strain on the individuals, the group will be given a money in the form of a Paw Pass to be used at a venue on campus.
Are you available at noon on a Tuesday or Thursday? Or at 11 a.m. on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday? These are times that are most likely that a group of 3-4 people would be able to get a table in the Cub Cafe or Academic Forum. Sign up on KUnited by visiting http://kunited.kutztown.edu and clicking on "Meet and Eat!" at the top of the page. Please use your full KU email address to log in, and your email password. You will be contacted with the information of the others you will be eating with so you can schedule your lunch. Thank you for your participation!

The GLBTQ Resource Center presents "Cutting the Cake: A Smaller Slice" at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28. Whether same-sex couples are offered domestic partnerships, civil unions, or actual state-recognized marriage, the reality is that they receive far fewer benefits and protections than straight couples. Join us in the GLBTQ Resource Center, OM 4 for a screening of the movie “For My Wife,” followed by a discussion about the pitfalls of unequal marriage rights.
