Bob Seiser of Roosevelt University and SCI-Midwest welcomes attendees to SSI 2016The SCI-Midwest has sponsored workshops on quantitative reasoning, food science and policy, and sustainability. Member institutions have been actively involved in NCSCE’s GLISTEN (Great Lakes Innovative Stewardship Through Education Network) initiative. The SCI-Midwest was one of the original six Centers initiated in 2008, and was hosted by Harold Washington College (City Colleges of Chicago) from 2008 until the end of 2011, and in that capacity also hosted the 2009 SENCER Summer Institute. Beloit College assumed the host institution role from 2012 to 2013, followed by the current host, Roosevelt University. The SCI-Midwest region includes Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
We are excited to partner with groups of faculty to host regional workshops related to SENCER issues. Please contact the co-directors with your ideas.
