Today: Interactive theater performances bring tough issues to life

The Graduate School is hosting two different improv shows on Feb. 1 dealing with ethics and faculty-student relationships.

The first, Dilemmas, which will show from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the JSAC Ballroom on the Summerville Campus, concentrates on research ethics and academic integrity in the college community. The second, ProAction, showing at 4-5:30 p.m. in the Lee Auditorium on the Health Sciences Campus, focuses on the graduate student-faculty relationship.

Boxed lunches will be provided at both performances for the first 75 attendees.

Both use interactive theater – scripted and improvisational audience participation – to help identify solutions to the two problems. Participants will witness a scene, have an opportunity to interact with the characters in the scene and take part in a facilitated conversation about the issues raised.

The performances are sponsored by The Graduate School at Augusta University.
