June 11: Increasing Global Population: A Bane to Sustainability. Ken Schmitz, Professor of Physical Chemistry, UMKC.
Enjoy our return to meeting in person at UMKC, Haag Hall. See directions below.
Our intent is to continue the combined Zoom and in-person format we have been using over the last year, but back in Haag Hall for the in-person participants.
There are two ways to join our meeting (2:00 to 4:00 PM)
1. In Person: 312 Haag Hall, UMKC:
Our Sunday CoR meetings are now held in Haag Hall, 312, on the UMKC Campus. Free parking is plentiful on Sundays. It is strongly advised (because of the extreme convenience provided) that the parking building be used. Drive to level 4 of the parking building at the corner of 52nd and Rockhill Road. (The entrances are a little south-west on Charlotte street.) After parking, walk across the aerial skywalk to Haag and Royall Halls. The skywalk dead-ends in a hallway on the 3rd floor. After the reaching the hallway, turn to your right. Walk a few steps, turn to your right. Enter Haag 312.
Google and Apple Maps give accurate parking garage directions for “5211 Charlotte St., Kansas City, MO.” Spiral up the garage to level 4 on the west side, and use the east side to descend to the street level. (If on the way you wind up on Holmes, drive east on 53rd to Charlotte, as 52nd is one-way westbound, but to exit to Holmes use 52nd. Most will exit directly to Rockhill, and must use 53rd.)
