We are pleased to share with you the report To Green and Beyond: Excellence through Sustainability at UIC [http://sustainability.uic.edu/get-involved/sustainability-strategic-thinking/]. This report, after two and a half years of work by the Sustainability Strategic Thinking steering and advisory committees, presents recommendations for UIC to develop, integrate and apply sustainability principles and practices across its educational mission, the research enterprise, and all campus operations.
We invite you to learn more and ask questions about the report at a Town Hall [http://sustainability.uic.edu/events/sustainability-strategic-thinking-report-town-hall/] on Monday, April 27 from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. in the Latino Cultural Center, Lecture Center B2. We hope you will take the opportunity to share your thoughts about UIC’s role in advancing sustainability through education, research and leadership. RSVP to Carla Gini at email@example.com.

On April 17, at about 9:35 p.m., UIC and Chicago Police responded to a call off campus, near the corner of Congress Parkway and Morgan.
Witnesses reported shots were fired from one car into another nearby car, striking the driver. The victim, who is not affiliated with UIC, fled the area and crashed several blocks away at 550 W. Van Buren.
The offender’s vehicle, make and model unknown, fled the scene in an unknown direction.
The Chicago Police Department is leading the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 311.
