This semester’s Real Time Chicago lecture series theme is ‘Critic(al) Infra-Structures’, examining the processes and procedures in the creation of new and renewed infrastructure and the impacts on communities from multiple scales and perspectives.
The first lecture in the series is ‘The Impact of Infrastructure on Communities: Three Rail-to-Trail Projects’. When new infrastructure is created in communities, what are the impacts on existing residents? This topic will explore the creation of three rail-to-trail projects in Chicago from initial dreaming to post-implementation community changes, and what is being done to remedy communities’ concerns.
The Sustainability Fee Advisory Board (SFAB) is currently accepting student proposals for Fall 2017.
The Sustainability Fee’s goal is to support projects that help to establish a sustainable campus environment. Paid by all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, the Sustainability Fee is $3 per semester.
The Sustainability Fee funds small, short-term projects, subsidizes larger, long-term projects on campus, and helps to fund student travel to sustainability-related conferences. Funding from this fee is administered by the SFAB, which is comprised of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, as well as faculty and staff. More information can be found here: http://go.uic.edu/sustainabilityfee
The Sustainability Fee application process if now open, the information can be found here: https://sustainability.uic.edu/campus-resources/sustainability-fee/
Students can also propose an internship (https://sustainability.uic.edu/jobs/sustainability-internship-program-2/ ) for the spring/summer cohort they can do that via the Sustainability Fee as well.
