This year, all members of the UB Community – faculty, staff and students – are invited to attend DIFCON: Our Cities. Our Issues. The issues pertain to recent events that have sparked civil unrest and protest across the nation. Water quality. Gun violence. Political polarization. Three panelists set the stage for audience engagement by sharing their expertise and insights. The goal of the discussion is to engage a diverse audience in constructive conversations about provocative issues that affect us as a community.
