IES Research Seminar Series Announced

The Institute for Environmental Sustainability's seminar series began with "Chicago in Indian Country" on Tuesday, September 1. Ann Durkin Keating discussed Chicago-area history based on her book Rising Up from Indian Country: The Battle of Fort Dearborn and the Birth of Chicago. The series will host one seminar per month. The next seminar will feature Loyola University graduate students whose research concerns environmental sustainability issues.

The mission of Loyola University Chicago’s Institute of Environmental Sustainability (IES) is to engage students in understanding and responding to local and global environmental issues by delivering Core environmental science courses to raise awareness and action in all LUC undergraduates, preparing IES baccalaureate and graduate students for socially responsible professions in environmental science, policy, education, business, and health, and advancing our knowledge of environmental problems and developing solutions through original research and community outreach.
