Professors Rebecca Hornung and Patty Rieman are in need of student, staff, or faculty volunteers to help run a poverty simulation for 40-45 social work and education students from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, in the Todd Wehr Center. This is a research-supported, published simulation, and Prof. Rieman is a trained facilitator with a fantastic amount of materials to make it realistic.


There are about 18 stations that need 1-2 volunteers each to role play as a bank teller, store clerk, social worker, teacher, police, etc. Sign up to volunteer now by contacting Prof. Rieman at 262-551-6334 or

Because volunteers need time to learn how to run their stations, they need to arrive at the Todd Wehr Center Jockey Rooms no later than 5 p.m. and commit to being present until at least 7:30 p.m.

It’s a highly impactful experience for volunteers and participants alike and would look great on your resume or annual report! We’d be delighted to write a letter for your file, too.
