Some of North Central’s residential neighbors share the same commitment for environmental stewardship. One such neighbor is Dr. Robert Sargis, who contributed generously to support the College’s tree-planting efforts.
“We’re really fortunate to live in a healthy and clean city,” said Sargis of Naperville. “These efforts will hopefully preserve that environmental quality for future generations. But I hope this will also trigger efforts to improve the environment in places where people don’t have the benefits of such privilege. This should be a challenge to all of us moving forward.
“It is clear that our environment can positively or negatively affect our health, and improving environmental quality needs to become an important component of comprehensive strategies to not only support diverse ecosystems but also to promote the well-being of those living in our community,” said Sargis.
The College will offer an interdisciplinary Environmental Studies major beginning fall 2017. For more information visit northcentralcollege.edu/environmental-studies.
