In the wake of the horrific Sept. 11 attack, California State University, Sacramento has planned several free events to provide discussion forums for the students, as well as the community.

At noon, Monday, Oct. 8 economics professor Jay Coon will give a slide presentation and discussion called "A Report From Ground Zero." Coon is a member of the Sacramento Urban Search and Rescue Team and he spent 10 days in Manhattan immediately following the disaster. He has put together a slide show of the photos he took and he will talk about what is like at "Ground Zero." The event is in the University Union Redwood Room.

Also from noon to 3 p.m., Monday Oct. 8 is the first in a series of forums that will provide an opportunity for people to explore issues and share perspectives about the attack on the World Trade Center. Speakers include CSUS professors Bill Dorman, Henry Chambers, Buzz Fozouni, John Syer and Ramzi Mahmood. The second forum in the series is at noon, Monday, Oct. 29.

At noon, Tuesday, Oct. 2, a panel discussion, "War and Peace in the Middle East: Sept. 11: Roots and Aftermath."
