CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - A new simulation on UCA's campus may look like a game, but it's serious business.
In an experiential setting, people can view poverty from different angles.
The poverty simulator called "Living On the Edge" is intended to move community leaders into the harsh realities of the poor so they can better address the problem.
"Participants are roleplaying the lives of individuals living in poverty and they have to successfully obtain resources and work with different agencies that people living in poverty might encounter in their day to day lives," said Amy Whitehead, Director of UCA Community Development Institute.
The Community Development Institute started in 1987 at UCA and is now a national training program with 4 other locations.
They'll be featuring the simulator through Friday.
