CAUSES in the News

You may have read about the University of the District of Columbia in the news recently. CAUSES  is honored to have received such positive press for our endeavors as of late!

For starters, our Professional Science Masters degree program was just featured in the Washington Post's Guide to Graduate Education

In the first feature, we take a look at the Professional Science Masters degree at the University of the District of Columbia. We also learn just how important it is to bridge the gap between scientific know-how and business savvy to take students to the next level of their careers.

How can this be accomplished? Read "New Academic Program Pairs Scientific Know-How with Business Savvy" for thoughts from Dean O'Hara, Dr. Deksissa and PSM alum, Toni Davidson.  

Then there was the popular Post Oil City exhibition, hosted with our friends at the Goethe Institut-Washington. We were grateful to be reviewed by the Washington City Paper and for Penn State, a fellow land-grant university, helping us to spread the word

And of course, being awarded three Sustainable DC grants has made several headlines, such as the Northwest Current and appearances in the Examiner, Office of the State Superintendent of Education's blog and Economic Development HQ

Keep reading for additional 
publications featuring CAUSES!

Also recently featured in the Post is Dr. Wayne Curtis, a project specialist in the Center for Sustainable Development, CAUSES, but Dr. Curtis is also the Director of the new Center for Urban Entrepreneurship in UDC's School of Business and Public Administration. He's doing great things for both SBPA and CAUSES, such as spearheading the upcoming DC Sustainability and Social Enterprise Summit.

Congratulations to Dr. Curtis for his feature and the great cover photo!  

Did you hear about our Gardens of the Senses being featured earlier this year in the Huffington Post's HBCUs Bring Health and Wealth with Community Gardens? They wrote:

In 2013, UDC faculty and students created one of the nation’s most unique community gardens. Where most gardens provide fruits and vegetables, UDC’s garden introduced residents to a variety of exotic plants in three separate gardens, with each designed to stimulate the senses of touch, smell and sight.

And don't forget, Sandy Farber was recently on the radio program "Of Consuming Interest," lending her expertise about deer-proofing your yard.

Finally, at the 2014 DC STEM Fair, 4-H Extension Agent Rachel Perry, was asked to demonstrate one of her projects live on NBC Washington! 

Here's hoping CAUSES continues to make positive headlines in the future!
