If you are interested in taking Sustainability Studies courses at Roosevelt University, the new semester begins today. While the Honors section of SUST 210 has already started to meet, the many other offerings begin this week. We have several options in the Spring 2012 term for students, including courses downtown, in Schaumburg, and online. Professor Mike Bryson will teach SUST 210 The Sustainable Future online, and we will also offer one section of SUST 210 at Roosevelt’s downtown Chicago campus taught by Michelle Hoffman-Trotter. As she did last summer, Hoffman-Trotter, esq. will teach an online offering of SUST 340 Policy, Law, and Ethics.
Maris Cooke will once again offer an online version of SUST 230 Food. Demand for this course is usually very strong, so it is best to register early to ensure space in the course. She will also offer a version of SUST 330 Biodiversity Saturdays at Roosevelt’s Schaumburg campus.
Once again, Dr. Carla Jones will offer an online section of SUST 310 Energy and Climate Change, and the program is excited to welcome David Morley of the American Planning Association, who will teach an online version of SUST 320 Sprawl, Transportation, and Planning.
Finally, we are pleased to debut SUST 350 Service and Sustainability this semester. Professor Bryson is organizing this course as a Wednesday afternoon offering. The initial meeting will take place in Roosevelt University’s Gage Building; thereafter, however, students will meet Wednesdays at the Chicago Lights Urban Farm. If you are interested in transformational service learning that encourages organic local food production in the middle of the city, this course promises to be a splendid experience.
