Today’s post on the SUST at RU Blog, the official voice of Roosevelt’s Sustainability Studies undergraduate program, is a review of 2015’s events, accomplishments, and projects. Several of these had a positive impact on RU’s Schaumburg Campus, including the work done by SUST majors Mary Rasic and Sarah Tag (BA ’15) on the RU Community Garden, which finished its 4th growing season; and on the comprehensive tree-tagging project of the campus arboretum that took place last fall.
Other new developments on this website include dozens of posts and research essays from students in SUST 210 Sustainable Future and 240 Waste classes in 2015, plus a notable expansion of the Environmental Justice section of our site. SUST senior Tiffany Mucci began work as Assistant Editor of Schaumburg’s Sustainable Future this past fall and will continue her work throughout the Spring 2016 semester on expanding this community-focused EJ project.
Thanks to all in the Schaumburg community who’ve supported the SUST Program since its inception in 2010. Here’s to a fun and productive 2016!
