What an exciting time to be in South Bend and Michiana! As the new Director for the Center for a Sustainable Future, I am excited about our Sustainability and Innovation Lecture Series. It features professionals from across the community who are implementing sustainability planning and practices, and it has been very inspiring. Each semester, it is exciting to meet new classes of students who see the need to study sustainability and are excited to learn about and apply their knowledge and skills in our community. To support community sustainability efforts, we are once again planning the E-Waste Fest in May. It is always exciting to see the materials individuals and businesses bring in order to make sure they are properly disposed. Finally, it is exciting to have a great team of students working with the Center and to be part of a supportive IU South Bend community. I hope you will make some time to attend a lecture, take a class, or talk sustainability with us in person or on social media.
Together to a Sustainable Future,
