Use & Abuse of Power, Leadership & Diversity Workshop
Participants have a chance to progress from one level of society to another by acquiring wealth through trading with other participants. Once the society is established, the group with the most wealth is given the right to make the rules for the game. The power group generally makes rules which maintain or increase its power and which those being governed consider to be unfair. This generally results in some sort of rebellion by the other members of the society.
The SDC also offers additional training by request to student organizations, departments, and offices. Send us an e-mail with some dates and times that work best for your group, and we will do our best to accommodate.
