Dr. Nell is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota, Morris. Her talk was part of Café Scientifique, an informal, UMM-sponsored lecture series that dives into critical issues in science.

CURE Visits Morris

Last night, a large group filled the Morris Senior/Community Center to learn about caucusing, where members of both parties join together at a local level to support candidates, pick leadership, and set their political direction. Erik Hatlestad organizes trainings on behalf of CURE, an environmental activism non-profit. His favorite part of Caucus Night is the resolutions voted on by the delegates.
Republicans and Democrats will both caucus on Tuesday, February 6.
