‘Be Counted’ — 2010 U.S. Census Campaign under way March 26 - April 19
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The 2010 U.S. Census has started, and with it, your chance to “Be Counted.”

The U.S. Postal Service is now delivering census forms to students in off-campus housing, including sorority and fraternity houses. Residence hall students will receive census forms in early April.

It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and you can make a big difference for UA and the Akron area. Many decisions are based on census data, including federal and state funding for tuition and loan programs and research projects, where employers will travel to recruit new employees and fair-market rents.

From March 19 to April 19, Questionnaire Assistance Centers will be open Monday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m. in the Polsky Building, Student Union and Bierce Library. For more information, visit Be Counted at https://www.uakron.edu/information/census.dot?host_id=1.

The School of Law’s Joseph G. Miller and William C. Becker Center for Professional Responsibility will offer its inaugural Journalism and the Law Lecture titled “Covering the Roberts Court in the Obama Era: A Reporter’s Reflections.” The lecture will be given by Adam Liptak, Supreme Court Correspondent and columnist for The New York Times. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held Tuesday, April 6 at 4 p.m. at The Quaker Square Inn at The University of Akron, 135 South Broadway. One hour of free continuing legal education credit will be offered. In his presentation, Liptak will discuss the Supreme Court in a time of rapid change. After a decade without new justices in the final years of the Rehnquist Court, the Roberts Court has welcomed three new justices and it may well see a fourth appointment in the near future. Liptak will also consider the leadership of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the impact of Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the implications for the Court of the fact that it has become, given Democratic control of Congress and the Presidency, the most conservative of the three branches of government.
