KU sent a team of faculty and staff to Lincoln University to attend the Council on Undergraduate Research's Creative Inquiry in the Arts and Humanities Institute from Nov. 10-12. In addition to attending concurrent sessions, the team worked closely with a CUR consultant/facilitator to draft a plan to foster and support inquiry-based learning in the arts and humanities.

WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

High pressure moves out to sea. Fair skies and mild temperatures are expected. A weak cold front to pass by mid-afternoon but the passage will be dry. Most of the cold air behind the front stays to our north so temperatures should remain fairly steady. High temperature in the upper-50s. Winds west at 5-13 mph.

Dr. Davis and Monsoon Mike recorded a new segment of their "Weather & Climate Chat" podcast. Find out how long the mild air lasts and when winter returns. Listen here: https://youtu.be/B2LInaWa9Ug.
