Political polarization is to be expected in any vibrant democratic society where freedom of expression and belief is respected. That this not spill into violence, however, is something that institutions must ensure. Institutions are those practices and organizations that have become entrenched in given circumstances or contexts. Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law are perhaps the most important legal institution that ensures people with radically different beliefs can live together harmoniously.

Prepare for the unexpected with this engaging, hands-on introduction to wilderness medicine, taught over two or two and a half days. If you like to take short trips relatively close to medical resources, work at wilderness camps, enjoy weekend family outdoor activities, or recreate outdoors, this course is for you.

This course is great for people of all experience levels, and is best suited for those who recreate outdoors where EMS response can be expected in a timely manner (fewer than eight hours). You'll learn the Patient Assessment System, how to provide effective first aid treatments for injuries and illnesses common in the outdoors, and how to make appropriate evacuation decisions.

You'll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments!

The WKU Student Chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics will host a Virtual Q&A Session with Dr. Justin Webster, Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Dr. Webster will present Can Differential Equations Explain How the Wind Brought Down a Bridge? at 3 p.m. Friday, April 23.

Where: Zoom (Meeting ID: 476 837 1123, Passcode: 123456)

Abstract: In this talk we describe, model, and analyze the phenomenon of aeroelastic flutter---that is, the way an elastic structure may become unstable in the presence of an adjacent flow of air. Under certain circumstances, a feedback instability occurs between elastic deformations and pressure changes in the airflow, resulting in sustained oscillations. A canonical example was seen in the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge, which collapsed in 1940 while fluttering in 40 mph winds. We note the important distinction between flutter, as we will discuss it, and the resonance phenomenon, due to the presence of a periodic external forcing.

Flutter is typically discussed in the context of aero-mechanical systems: buildings and bridges in wind, and flight systems. However, applications also arise in biology (snoring and sleep apnea), and in alternative energy technologies (piezoelectric energy harvesters). Through mathematical modeling (using differential equations) and subsequent analyses of these models, we try to capture the mechanism that gives rise to this type of instability. Additionally, when flutter occurs, we attempt to describe its qualitative features, as well as how to prevent it (or bring it about).

For this talk we assume calculus and some basic notions from physics, although some ideas from differential equations and linear algebra will be mentioned and explained.

This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.

FGP assists students as they negotiate the often difficult affective and academic shifts between high school and college. Learn more about the program in this exhibit, presented by the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing, the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the WKU Center for Literacy, and the Kentucky Museum.
