Institute for Environmental Communication
The Institute for Environmental Communication (IEC) brings together a diverse group of citizens (environmentalists, scientists, journalists, industrialists, Brown Field community people, politicians, government employees, teachers, business persons, and the like) for 12 or so evening sessions to discuss issues of vital environmental importance to the region and nation. The IEC Fellows Program is modeled after the highly regarded Institute of Politics that has been offered by Loyola University since 1968. The IEC's first sessions began in fall 1999.
