  • Editor’s notes:
    There are many more programs and initiatives on campus that promote a healthy environment. Among its numerous services, U. of I. Extension focuses on research, guidance and support on critical environmental issues. The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment supports sustainability efforts on campus and beyond. The College of Veterinary Medicine’s Wildlife Medical Clinic cares for diseased or injured wildlife and trains students in wildlife medicine. And faculty members, researchers and students in the arts and humanities regularly address environmental issues in their work and scholarship.

    The INHS is a division of the Prairie Research Institute at the U. of I.
