In the three month time period of the planning and invasion stages of the Iraq war, Dr. Raabe was called upon to do on-air analysis for 12 TV regular news presentations and three Sunday morning news-in-depth broadcasts. He also acted as resource person for nine radio broadcasts concerning the Iraq war. While these presentations may be considered “community service,” given the nature of the subject matter, they involved much research and preparation to interpret events and trends in the war for the general public. This was in addition to his ongoing research and teaching obligations.
Student support services included working closely on strategies to get one student national fellowships such as Truman, Rhodes, Fulbright, and Gates. This was in addition to normal departmental advising and Dr. Raabe’s status as College of Social Sciences pre-law adviser to students of any major interested in attending law school.
