Fall 2011 SUST 220 Water Seminar Reports on Water in Schaumburg Project

The fall semester has concluded, and Professor Mike Bryson reports on the accomplishments of students in his SUST 220 Water course.

This past fall semester, students in my Sustainability Studies 220 Water seminar at Roosevelt University’s Schaumburg Campus collaborated on a semester-long research endeavor, the Water in Schaumburg Project. Small groups of students researched water resource issues related to water supply, wastewater treatment, wetlands, and the Salt Creek watershed — all within the context of the Village of Schaumburg and surrounding communities. They wrote essays, gathered images, and collected/annotated internet resources on four key topics — water supply, wastewater treatment, wetlands, and the Salt Creek watershed. After synthesizing and editing their work, I uploaded it to the Schaumburg’s Sustainable Future website, a collaborative endeavor I initiated in the spring of 2011 with my SUST 210 Sustainable Future class.

Registration for that spring SUST 210 section (and all of our spring offerings) is open now.
