Loyola University New Orleans’ Institute for Environmental Communications accepting nominations for the 2002-2003 sessions

Loyola press release - July 19, 2002

(New Orleans)—The Institute for Environmental Communications (IEC) at Loyola University New Orleans will begin its fourth session in September. Nominations, including self-nominations, for participants are now being accepted. All classes will be held at the Loyola University Monroe Library on Wednesdays, from 6:45-9:45 p.m.

The IEC brings together a diverse group of citizens (environmentalists, scientists, journalists, industrialists, business people, and educators) to discuss issues of vital environmental importance to the region and nation. Some of the topics that will be presented by experts in those fields include: economics of environmentalism, environmental justice, understanding environmental data and risk and environmental media. The IEC is modeled after the highly regarded Institute of Politics that has been offered at Loyola for over 30 years.

Participants must attend a full day workshop on September 7 and then are asked to attend all sessions. Those who miss no more than three meetings will be designated Fellows of IEC. To obtain a nomination form or for questions, contact Robert A. Thomas, Ph.D., professor and Loyola Chair for Environmental Communications at the Center for Environmental Communications at (504) 865-3793, fax (504) 865-3799, or email at lucec@loyno.edu.
