This year’s Scholarship of Sustainability series begins today, so you’ll be hearing this plug too late for the first session. But it runs Thursday afternoons from 4:00 p.m. until 5:30 through April 17 (skipping the week of spring break). Talks are held in Room 149 of the National Soybean Research Center, 1101 West Peabody Drive, Urbana. Further details about the Scholarship of Sustainability Series are available on the homepage of the School of Earth, Society and Environment http://www.earth.illinois.edu/students/courses/sos.html.
