Thank You Sponsors!


IES is pleased to have partnered with the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership to host this important conference.

About IES:
The Institute of Environmental Sustainability strives to create solutions to the stress on our planet's natural resources, expanding knowledge in the service of humanity through teaching, conducting research and sponsoring outreach activities on pressing environmental issues. These issues include global climate change, the food production and distribution system, conserving and recovering biodiversity, restoring ecosystem function, identifying emerging environmental contaminants, and privatizing natural resources.

The Institute endeavors to develop a conservation ethic, increasing Loyola's campus energy efficiency and transforming our consumption behaviors to conserve natural resources for the common good, for future generations and for all forms of life on the planet.

Special Exhibitors

Healing Earth: Healing Earth is a free, online environmental science textbook for upper level secondary school students, beginning college students, and adult learners. We invite teachers around the world to use this resource in their classrooms and share their experience with us. Healing Earth is an ongoing project, so we hope that everyone--teachers, young students, adult learners--will help us continue to improve this textbook.

The Newman Institute: The Newman Institute is the first Jesuit university ever founded in Sweden, and the first Catholic college to be accredited in Sweden since the Reformation in the sixteenth century. IES is currently sending cohorts of students to our new Environmental Justice Program at the Newman Institute in Sweden. The program is small and flexible enough that students can have a personalized learning experience.

Faith in Place: Since 1999, Faith in Place has worked with over 1,000 houses of worship throughout Illinois to protect our common land, water, and air. With outreach staff working across the state and offices located in Chicago, Lake County, and Central Illinois, Faith in Place inspires faithful people to care for the Earth through our four program areas: Energy & Climate Change, Sustainable Food & Land Use, Water Preservation, and Advocacy.
