High-School Students Tend to UDC's Garden
A group of 9th grade students from Edmund Burke School, a progressive, urban, co-ed college prep school for grades 6-12, are learning about climate change science in their earth science class. To fulfill a service-learning project, their teacher has coordinated a community garden project with the University, where they will be working on our Garden of the Senses over several weeks. The project will be documented on Just CAUSES, so stay tuned! For more information, contact Coy McKinney.
HBCU Forum Visits UDC
UDC was pleased to last month host a delegation of architecture students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The HBCU Forum included Morgan State, Prairie View and Howard Universities. Students toured one of CAUSES' aquaponics facilities and participated in the Post-Oil City panel on food and water security, as environmental considerations are essential in design.
