Controlling the Labs (Single Copy)

Controlling the Labs involves a dispute between a suburban university with its lucrative research laboratories and the residential neighbors over what controls should be imposed on campus research that could harm the community.

This is an excellent game for teaching in-group negotiations in which factions within the organization are in potential conflict over the appropriate response to the neighbors' challenge. It raises the important question "How Should Public Institutions Deal With An Angry Public?" The players are the university president, the university's publicist, its environmental safety officer, its star researcher, the head of the neighborhood association, the head of the faculty, the head of the student association and the local health inspector.
