Achievements

Marie Haddad, a spring 2023 Environmental Studies graduate, has secured a job using the skills she learned in the GIS course only months after graduating! Her final project in the class was focused on environmental justice and air quality. She took temporal air quality data and interpolated it across the entire state to show estimates of concentrated pollution. She linked the pollution data to census data to investigate whether the areas were marginalized. 
 

Olivia Guerra received the Environment Program Outstanding Research Award in Spring of 2023. This is awarded to a student who has made outstanding contributions to research in either Environmental Science or Environmental Studies. A student's outstanding work in their Capstone project is perhaps the best demonstration of this.

 

Congratulations Olivia!

How long have you been at Loyola? 9 years (!!)

Favorite thing about Loyola or teaching? Definitely Loyola's student body.  Loyola students are bright, socially aware individuals who care about making a positive impact in their community. Coming to work and engaging with them every day is such a joy.
