How did a group of "ordinary" citizens find the courage to take on one of the most powerful institutions, run by one of the most powerful men, in the country? And how did they manage to break into FBI offices, cart off thousands of pages of documents, and vanish without a trace? And how did they get away with airing the bureau's dirty laundry and exposing its political spying? Further, how did they keep their identities secret from 1971 until this very year?

Find out tomorrow (Tues. Sept. 23) at 7:00 p.m. in Textor 103. There will be a screening of 1971, the film based on their gripping story, followed by a Q&A with Jeff Cohen, Park Center for Independent Media director and associate professor of journalism, who has written about the FBI, NSA, and government malfeasance.

Free and open to all. Bring a friend . . . or several.

The Office of the Provost and Center for Faculty Excellence are pleased to co-sponsor a series of informal gatherings for faculty to talk about courses they are teaching in each of the six ICC themes. Participants should come prepared to talk for 2 minutes about what they are doing to address the theme and also to hear how their colleagues are integrating the theme into courses. We anticipate mutual learning among faculty members that will enrich every ICC course. Faculty who aren’t yet teaching in a particular theme are also welcome to attend and gain insight into possibilities for their own courses. We encourage you to drop in for a few minutes before or after class or stay the entire time as your schedule allows. Refreshments will be provided.
