RU students canoe the Chicago River in May 2009

In the 2009-2010 academic year, I co-founded the Sustainability Studies (SUST) program at Roosevelt University with my College of Professional Studies colleagues Carl Zimring (now at the Pratt Institute) and Brad Hunt. The links below connect you with key information and resources about the program, sustainability efforts underway at Roosevelt, and environmental news/issues/events throughout the Chicago region.
