Solar Farm 2.0

In order to reach the iCAP objective of 25,000 MWh/year of solar energy by FY25, additional panels will need to be installed.  Large scale, ground mounted panels appear to be the least expensive route towards achieving the FY25 objective.

Certificate in Environmental Writing (CEW)

The Undergraduate Certificate in Environmental Writing (CEW) is a fantastic new offering for Illinois students wanting to engage the latest research in sustainability science — and to build their skills in environmental communication.

The Certificate is a joint venture of iSEE, the School for Earth, Society, and Environment, and the English Department, and is at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary sustainability programs in the nation.

Bike at Illinois Website and Campaign

Biking on the University of Illinois campus and in Champaign-Urbana is an excellent option for much of the community. Illinois has been recognized as a bronze-level bicycle friendly university by the League of American Bicyclists. The City of Champaign has been recognized as a bronze-level bicycle friendly community and Urbana as a gold-level bicycle friendly community.

Science Policy Workshop

The Science Policy wants to educate students how to effectively interact with policy makers, as well as advocate for continual science research funding. Funding is an inherently policy-based process as it is determined by legislators, but conversely it is the lifeblood of fundamental research and academic innovation. Sustainability, and therefore its funding, is at the heart of science policy, as it relies on the intersection of science for developing new technologies and the public sphere which determines its implementation.

iSEE Collaboratory

At the heart of iSEE’s mission is training students to become the next generation of sustainability leaders. To help fulfill this mission, iSEE will develop a “collaboratory” — a new classroom, conference, collaboration, and communications space next to our offices in the National Soybean Research Center (NSRC). This new complex will include space for experiential learning, a collaboration incubator, and a communications laboratory.
