Dr. Thomas Boyce, professor of epidemiology and child development, gives advice to adults about how to best help youngsters with their questions and fears about the war. See the story online.

Chancellor's message
Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl, an historian, talks about why the war is a "unprecedented departure in American foreign policy" in a campus news story. Berdahl also talks about how universities, and UC Berkeley in particular, have a unique role to play as places where differing ideas and factions "come together, intersect, and interact."

Lecture tonight (March 20) by newsmaker John Brady Kiesling

His talk is on "Preserving America's Moral Capital," and he will be available for interviews. Call for more information.
